For example, Seacology works to preserve the highly endangered biodiversity of islands throughout the world. Seacology works with indigenous islanders to both support community needs and protect precious natural resources. In Falealupo, Samoa, Seacology built a critically needed school. In exchange, the community agreed to establish a 30,000-acre forest reserve. In Navolau, Fiji, Seacology is constructing a community center in exchange for the establishment of a 370,000-acre marine reserve.
EcoLogic Finance was born from the premise that the greatest threat to fragile ecosystems worldwide is massive human poverty. In Latin America, parts of Africa and Asia, EF provides loan capital to support low-income communities whose business activities foster environmental conservation. This gives small farming and agricultural communities access to needed loans?for which they normally wouldn?t qualify.
Solar Cookers International assists communities to use solar energy to cook food and pasteurize water. Something as simple as a solar cooker curbs carbon dioxide emissions and reduces the need for fuelwood and thereby deforestation.
