Earthjustice (earthjustice.org) is a public-interest law firm dedicated to protecting endangered wildlife, fragile habitats, and the right of all people to a healthy, toxin-free environment. Established in 1971, it now has a legal staff of more than 50 people in nine offices around the country, including a legislative team in Washington, D.C. The firm has represented more than 1,000 clients free of charge, from the Friends of the Everglades to the National Audubon Society. Earthjustice takes corporations to court for breaking federal and state environmental laws, and challenges government agencies for failing to enforce them. Its recent legal victories include the first-ever limits on coal-burning power plants’ emissions of mercury and arsenic and the reinstatement of endangered-species status for the grizzly bears of Yellowstone National Park.
