Are you tired of namby-pamby environmental groups? Are you tired of overpaid corporate environmentalists who suck up to bureaucrats and industry? Have you become disempowered by the reductionist approach of environmental professionals and scientists?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Earth First! is for you. Earth First! is effective. Our front-line, direct action approach to protecting wilderness gets results. We have succeeded in cases where other environmental groups had given up, and have drawn public attention to the crises facing the natural world. . . .
Earth First! is different from other environmental groups. Here are some things to keep in mind about Earth First! and some suggestions for being an active and effective Earth First!er: First of all, Earth First! is not an organization, but a movement. There are no "members" of Earth First!, only Earth First!ers. It is a belief in biocentrism, that life of the Earth comes first, and a practice of putting our beliefs into action.
Very interesting group to study if you're interested in environmental organizations.

It's incredible to see just how much Mickey Mouse evolved in a time span of less than 10 years. The character transformed from a rather bawdy rat to a refined mouse with with humanlike physical characteristics. Mickey even took on humanlike proportions so that it would be an animated character that people would relate to and thereby be more drawn to.
