Mission:

At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature;to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law, and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters, and climate that species need to survive.We want those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive.

Results:

According to the LA Weekly, we're "pound for pound, dollar for dollar, the most effective conservation organization in the country."

Programs:

Climate Law Institute, Endangered Species, Oceans, Public Lands, Urban Wildlands

The Center for Biological Diversity provides me the very best information about recent activity of governments, non-profits and others who are either forwarding or retarding the health and diversity of our species. Its actions in court are important for combating irresponsible organizations in their rush to exterminate some of the most important creatures on the planet.

I am so proud to be a member of the Center for Biological Diversity. They are here in Tucson and I have been able to volunteer at their headquarters. I have witnessed the devotion of staff members to working to protect both animals and plants that are under stress from Climate Change, habitat loss, dangerous chemicals, or other hazards. This is really important to me because so many environmental organizations specialize in one or two species. They are doing great things that will of course impact other plants and animals, but The Center is working across the entire wildlife spectrum. They use their legal skills and research talent to save so many. I am not wealthy but I give what I can and volunteer as needed to help the Center with their work. Barbara Cain

If you are a lover of all creatures great and small and you wish to see knowledgeable, tough people throwing their heart and soul into protecting the earth, this is the organization for you. The Center for Biological Diversity constantly goes to bat in courtrooms across the world to protect threatened species--from big, charismatic mammals to tiny snails and delicate flowers. They are passionate and fearless!

The Center for Biological Diversity Inc. Is a non-profit organization that is in the trenches actively getting the job done. This nonprofit organization has lawyers and scientists on their team to speak up for the environment, the animals and our planet. I wholeheartedly support them and love the results of their hard work.

CBD has an outstanding Executive Director and smart, talented staff. They use the law to protect land and species, and they win. I have included the organization as a beneficiary on my retirement account.
