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

Reviews for Center For Biological Diversity Inc
The State of Oregon's Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) Commission has decided to remove wolves from the state's Endangered Species list, despite a wolf population of only 84 wolves. I was aware of this upcoming hearing and had been lobbying for maintaining these protections with help from The Center for Biological Diversity. The Center's emails kept me informed of the course of the State's actions. I asked for help from The Center in the form of sample letters I could read before writing to ODFW. I got immediate help with my request. Several hearings and letters later, the bad news came in that the ODFW Commission ignored the facts and the science and bowed to the hunting and livestock special interests. I turned to The Center praying that they would have some answers for what to do next and looking to make a donation to fuel any organization that would make a legal challenge to the ODFW Commission. That organization? The Center for Biological Diversity. Just received the kindest thank you for the donation I made to them. What more could anyone expect from a top notch charity?
They say what needs to be said. Limiting fossil fuel use, meat consumption, and family size are the three key actions to solving our environmental problems. However, most organizations are reluctant to mention the problems associated with meat consumption and population growth. The Center for Biological Diversity is one of the few that make a clear statment about the impact of all three.
I find CBD to be the most helpful educator, the most diligent legal action taker, the most conscientious with their donors' money. I can't praise them highly enough!

I am most impressed with CBD's fearless side taking in favor of animals, habitat, and all things that take their toll on them. I especially like CBD's willingness to take on over-population with their condoms campaign.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
is the sense of being part of an organization that has success because of its allied activists. Things actually change because of their (and my) efforts.

About every week
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
I read and rely on weekly Endangered Earth newsletters (and other action alerts) from CBD, and their thoroughness, professionality, coherence of mission, and writing style (just cheeky enough!) make the issues vivid and understandable. They simply get stuff done.
Visionary advocates for the environment, wildlife and wild lands. Impactful work that is essential for our time. I support their causes. Their commitment to this work is paving the landscape for our future generations. Thank you Center for Biological Diversity! Great work. Great cause.
The Center for Biological Diversity is a great organization advocating animals and the environment. I am happy to give them my support. They are thorough in their coverage of issues and effective in their approach to resolving problems. Their law based approach is very effective. I especially appreciate the way they communicate their programs to members.
I appreciate their comprehensive approach to all things environmental. No critter is too small, no corporation is too big, and no politician is too powerful for the CBD to confront. Their newsletters are informative, funny and beautiful. Their action alerts are well-targeted and effective. I'm proud to support the Center for Biological Diversity. Apart from changing my habits and sharing information with others, I believe supporting CBD is among the best things I can do for the health of this little blue ball we all call home.
I love getting their email "endangered earth" it is very informative and has timely action items!
