Season’s greetings and thanks for your support!


On behalf of everybody at EIA’s London HQ, I’d like to wish our supporters and followers around the world all best wishes for a peaceful and successful new year.

It’s been another 12 months in which EIA’s staff have found themselves juggling heavy workloads, both in the field and at various high-profile international gatherings, a period during which we highlighted the threat of extinction to the vaquita porpoise and totoaba fish, exposed illegal rosewood exports from Laos and Cambodia, helped achieve a ban on microbeads in the UK, released our awarding-winning film Ulin about the struggle of a remote community to safeguard its ancestral forest, produced a series of interactive maps of wildlife crime seizures, helped secure international support for the closure of ivory markets worldwide and celebrated a major milestone in more than decade of work to secure legal timber from Indonesia.

As ever, all of us here at EIA are mindful that you, our followers and supporters, are a huge part of our success – every time you donate, Tweet or share our news via Facebook or G+ you are helping to further and spread awareness of our work to expose and counter transnational environmental crime.

EIA is only a small organisation working with limited resources and often in hazardous and difficult conditions – yet our 30-plus years of experience show just how much of an impact small, mobile and creative groups can have.

So, my sincere thanks for all your support!


Mary Rice
Executive Director
