|Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC)|
ASOC seeks to guarantee the highest possible level of environmental protection for the Antarctic region, whether for tiny but important krill or for entire ecosystems like the Ross Sea. ASOC has three high-priority focus areas - Climate Change and the Antarctic, Ross Sea Preservation and Krill Conservation.
|The Nature Conservancy|
From coral reefs to deserts, the Nature Conservancy works to protect the lands and waters that plants and animals need to survive for us and for future generations. The Conservancy has fisheries and marine conservation programs around the globe in important seascapes including marine projects in every coastal state and territory of the U.S. The Nature Conservancy is dedicated to protecting these vital ecosystems and all the corals, fish and people that depend on them.
SeaWeb transforms knowledge into action by shining a spotlight on workable, science-based solutions to the most serious threats facing the ocean, such as climate change, pollution and depletion of marine life. To accomplish this important goal, SeaWeb convenes forums where economic, policy, social and environmental interests converge to improve ocean health and sustainability.
Our goal is to inspire intelligent use of the earth's natural resources and empower individuals to become leaders in biosphere stewardship. The health of our biosphere - our life support system - is decreasing due to climate change and the needs associated with a growing human population. We address this global challenge by working locally with island peoples whose livelihood is most affected by sweeping ecological changes.
|Climate Science and Policy Watch|
The Government Accountability Project (GAP) launched Climate Science Watch (CSW) in 2005 as a public interest education and advocacy project dedicated to holding public officials accountable for using climate research effectively and with integrity in dealing with the challenge of global climate disruption. CSW was developed and spearheaded by Rick Piltz, who joined GAP when he resigned after 10 years in the U.S. Global Change Research Program Coordination Office to blow the whistle on the George W. Bush White House for political interference with the integrity of climate change communication.
|Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)|
The IPCC has been established by World Meteorological Organization (WMO)external link and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)external link to assess scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant for the understanding of climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.
|Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution|
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is the world's leading, independent non-profit organization dedicated to ocean research, exploration, and education. Our scientists and engineers push the boundaries of knowledge about the ocean to reveal its impacts on our planet and our lives.
Wetlands International is the only global not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wetlands. We are deeply concerned about the loss and deterioration of wetlands such as lakes, marshes and rivers. Our vision is a world where wetlands are treasured and nurtured for their beauty, the life they support and the resources they provide.
|World Resources Institute|
WRI is a global research organization that spans more than 50 countries, with offices in the United States, China, India, Brazil, Indonesia and more. Our more than 450 experts and staff work closely with leaders to turn big ideas into action to sustain our natural resources—the foundation of economic opportunity and human well-being. Our work focuses on six critical issues at the intersection of environment and development: climate, energy, food, forests, water, and cities and transport.
