About the Journal

Earth Island Journal is the media arm of Earth Island Institute — an organization that supports environmental activists and leaders working to protect the biological and cultural diversity that sustains our environment.

Our award-winning international magazine combines investigative journalism, thought-provoking commentary, and art to highlight the subtle but profound connections between the environment and other contemporary issues. We go beyond daily headlines to explore environmental concerns from a wide range of perspectives — from the personal to the political, the local to the global — and produce the type of investigative reporting and narrative writing found in few other environmental magazines.

The Journal’s mix of hard-hitting exposés and inspiring stories of grassroots movements for sustainability has won us numerous awards through the years. We put our principles next to our reporting and marshal the facts to make a passionate argument for defending Earth.
Our unique brand of environmental journalism is a key resource for anyone eager to help protect our shared planet.
