What We Do

We focus our efforts on conservation, environmental education, legislation, and communication at a national and local level.

The iMIS Foundation provides local and national leadership in environmental and wildlife conservation, supports habitat protection and repair, and guides legislative action around the world to preserve important ecological sites. We are a global organization of more than 2 million supporters, members and activists in 32 countries and territories.

On a practical level, we organize local environmental action and cleanup days in communities all over the world, as well as assist state, province, and national entities with data collection and tracking of important species and their habitats. We develop and provide educational materials free of charge for schools, and lobby for environmentally-supportive legislation. There are limitless ways than you can get involved with us and become a part of our mission, but one important way is through donating your time or financial resources.


Our vision is for every person to be able to enjoy the rich ecological heritage of our planet.

Our vision is for every person to be able to enjoy the rich ecological heritage of our planet in as unspoiled state as possible. We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion and are funded by our membership, public donations, and the generous support of our corporate partners and sponsors.
