Taking Marine Mammals Incidental to Alaska Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Project in Cook Inlet

On May 11th, 2018, The Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) wrote a letter in response to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries' request for comments on a petition for regulations governing the taking of marine mammals (ITR) by the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC) in Cook Inlet, Alaska. In this letter, EIA voiced its concern that this ITR permit request will have a major impact on Cook Inlet's endangered population of beluga whales. EIA also pointed to troubling procedural errors that occurred during the public comment period which made it difficult to discern what the true impact of the proposed project would be on Cook Inlet beluga. For all the reasons highlighted in the letter, EIA urged the National Marine Fisheries Service to deny AGDC's petition.

Room for Improvement: Using DNA Analysis to Address Rhino Horn Trafficking
09/22/2021
Law enforcement officials from around the world have seized illegal supplies of rhino horn at least once a week on average for the past 10 years. The type of seizure ranges widely. It could be a pair of fresh horns confiscated from poachers who just gunned down a rhino inside a national park. Or possibly dozens of horns were discovered cleverly hidden in an air cargo shipment. Sometime it’s just a few grams of powdered horn found in a traveler’s luggage. Maybe a mix of raw and carved horns was seized after a police raid on a trafficker’s home.

Indonesia President Urged to Take Immediate Action to Protect Orangutans
10/29/2021
Indonesia’s president must act now to prevent the irreversible decline of Asia’s only great ape, warns a new report by the Washington, DC-based Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA). EIA’s report reveals that Indonesia’s orangutan population is on a steady march to extinction due to a combination of habitat loss, illegal killings, and wildfires. In just four years, from 2016-2019, more than 1.825 million acres of intact orangutan forest was deforested according to EIA’s analysis. EIA’s findings are alarming in light of a 2018 study that found the island of Borneo alone lost an estimated 148,500 orangutans between 1999 to 2015.
