This institution is engaged in the protection of the environment. Its activities are carried out in countries such as the USA, Great Britain, France, Czech Republic, India, and many others. Dave Foreman is the person who created this organization in 1981. The organization’s first mission was to repair the Glen Canyon dike with a 100-meter plastic canvas.
Another mission, more successful and widespread, was carried out by the company in the summer of 1990. Several hundred participants chained themselves to the trees of the Redwood Forest. The purpose of this mission was to interrupt logging operations on the American Pacific coast. The mission ended successfully. Protest campaigns (1994), touching upon numerous environmental issues, were held under the banner of Earth First!
