ABOUT ECOTRUST: Ecotrust's role is to serve as a think-tank that identifies deep innovation, and then it seeks to turn those ideas into proof-of-concept realities. For nearly 20 years, Ecotrust has used this approach to convert $60 million in grants into more than $300 million in capital for local people, businesses, and organizations from Alaska to California. Ecotrust's many innovations include co-founding the world's first environmental bank, starting the world's first ecosystem investment fund, creating a range of programs in the fisheries, forestry, food and farm sectors, and developing new scientific and information tools to improve social, economic and environmental decision-making. Ecotrust works locally in ways that promise hope abroad, and it honors and supports the wisdom of Native and First Nation leadership in its work. More on the Web at www.ecotrust.org.
