ABSTRACT
The article looks at how with the support from a number of charitable foundations and fellow nonprofits, the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) has been building on its efforts to promote eco-friendly travel. The Federation's campaign to protect Alaska's Prince William Sound got a boost from the Oak Foundation, which awarded NWF a grant to develop its sustainable tourism work in the region. A partnership with Carbonfund.org will allow NWF members to neutralize the global warming impact created by driving, flying, and other activities through the purchase of carbon offsets.
