List of environmental organizations


An environmental organization is an organization coming out of the conservation or environmental movements that seeks to protect, analyse or monitor the environment against misuse or degradation from human forces.

The organization may be a charity, a trust, a non-governmental organization, a governmental organization or an intergovernmental organization.
