As society’s awareness of sustainability and environmental issues grows, so has government involvement in the cause. At the same time, numerous environmental NGOs and conservation organizations have been created to encourage and coordinate positive action in areas as diverse as air and water quality, wildlife and fishery preservation, and pollution and emissions abatement.
