Environmental Defenders Office uses the law to protect our wildlife, people and places.
IMPACT AREA: Protection and restoration of the environment
Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) is the largest environmental legal centre in the Australia-Pacific, dedicated to protecting our climate, communities and shared environment by providing access to justice, running ground-breaking litigation and leading law reform advocacy.
EDO is an accredited community legal service and a non-government, not-for-profit organisation that uses the law to protect and defend Australia’s wildlife, people and places.
The Morris Family Foundation supports the deforestation work of EDO in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. PNG has some of the world’s last remaining old growth tropical rainforests, and EDO are working with PNG lawyers and local landholders to protect the trees from illegal logging and hold the companies responsible for it.
