The Earth Island Institute was founded in 1982 by environmentalist David Brower.It organizes and encourages activism around environmental issues and provides public education. Funding comes from individual members and supporting organizations.

Some of the projects have enjoyed significant success: a consumer-led boycott resulted in 100% of American tuna becoming "dolphin safe".
