2. What circumstances lead to the start of the agency?
3. What is the contemporary role of the agency in monitoring and/or protecting the environment?
4. What methods (technology, education, regulation, legislation) does the agency use to promote environmental stewardship?
5. What research on the environment does the agency support?
6. How is the organization funded and how does this affects its status as a private or public institution?
