Island Press develops, publishes, markets, and disseminates books and information tools essential for understanding and solving environmental problems.
Island Press believes that those working to protect biological diversity, conserve natural resources, and promote human health and quality of life from environmental threats must have access to the best multidisciplinary information available and early exposure to new ideas.
We also believe in transforming science and evidence-based information into understanding and action. We want to help create problem solvers—not just the professionals of today, but also the next generation of environmental leaders. We measure our success not only by the number of books we publish and programs we support, but also by the degree to which we help new ideas and new voices emerge.
There has never been a more critical time for the environment. For those who join with us, we offer a unique opportunity to actively engage the most pressing issues of our time—and succeed at making a difference.
