I believe in the Center for Biological Diversity for three main reasons: 1) It has integrity. CBD does not send me junk mail in order to get my membership. Instead, folks at CBD work hard and make a dramatic difference, and that buys my membership better than any tote bag or set of cards with cute polar bears on them. 2) CBD is effective. It pressures the government to abide by and strengthen environmental laws, which is simple but powerful. I am continually impressed by how much the CBD accomplishes. 3) CBD is up-to-date. Not only is the Center abreast of current issues and opportunities, but it uses new avenues and techniques for disseminating its message. The CBD never seems old or behind the times. The CBD does the best job (by far) of legal environmental activism of any organization out there.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing support for a local river in my town grow.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give it a lot more money.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I know they are making a concrete difference, and doing so as efficiently as possible.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, competent, and hardworking.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world. Well, at least it could make the U.S. government do what it says it will do a lot more often.

Ways to make it better...

the CBD hadn't pulled out of the public campaign due to lack of funding. Fortunately, they stayed in the legal battle and are making a difference there.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not enough funding, not enough funding, and not enough funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

is there any way to diversify funding sources for the CBD?

I appreciate the fact that CBD is the only conservation/environmental organization I am aware of that is actually offering some valid input toward human population control. Human overpopulation is the single greatest threat to life on earth, of every sort. I appreciate the professionalism and skill of the legal and biological teams of CBD. They are my favorite conservation group.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

work in all parts of the world on population education and control, and be even more effective when contending with well funded world wreckers. The attitude of CBD is so impressive and apolitical. I appreciate the dedication and integrity.

I have given donations and signed all of their action petitions for several years. When they asked members to vote on whether CBD should drop Verizon because of Verizon's support of Massey Energy removing mountain tops for coal. 96% members voted to drop Verizon. After a few months, I was surprised at not seeing it make public that they had dropped Verizon. After writing to them to ask why - they wrote back to say that they are working on getting a new carrier and will go public when all the details are worked out. I am hoping they will choose CREDO as their carrier as CREDO is a Wonder group who give a percentage of their profits to many wonderful non-profit groups. Also, just recently The Nation magazine had a great article on

do so much more to help the earth. To save nature and animals and in so doing save all of our lives. When groups depend on donations to survive and they DO NOT take money from Big Oil or Big Gas or other polluters, they deserve our full support!

I am an amateur naturalist, former employee of the Nature Conservancy (IT). I appreciate the diligence of this organization in tracking imperiled species and keeping me posted on their protection or lack thereof. Today it was amphibians. Recently they informed me about ocelots. I could not be involved at all without their timely, detailed emails.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

keeping the public informed on the status of species at risk; a very important role.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

my sense of being able to make a difference.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

None. Sorry. I am one of your internet people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Buy land, I would hope, to save the critters and plants that depend on that landscape.

Ways to make it better...

I were a PhD biologist. Unfortunately I am not, but my amateur status in improved by the posts I read.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The inertia of Washington and the unenlightened self-interest of many people who do not yet perceive how small a terrarium we inhabit.

One thing I'd also say is that...

We all need to do something. This organization helps us in that regard.

This is my favorite environmental organization because they have the knowledge and talented people to get things done in very specific ways, especially when it comes to targeting individual species in peril, and habitats. They are backed by legal strength, which seems to be needed more than ever now. They have excellent biologists working for them. All folks I have met go above and beyond the usual workload often, and really care about Nature. And the organization is not afraid to push back towards politicians, agencies, and developers who threaten the last wild and natural places we have. I enjoy helping them out whenever I can and highly recommend working for this group.

The Great!

I have personally experienced the results of this organization, and they are very good at getting results in tough environmental issues. They are also friendly! We need more groups like this that can use science and get tough.

I am an environmental educator and leader of several environmental groups. I follow the Center's email newsletters and have used many of their stories in my day-to-day work. Their work is inspirational to me and reassuring in that someone is keeping a close watch on the nation's lawmakers. Center has been able to accomplish things that like-minded people all across America dream of doing, but haven't had the organization to before this. I applaud that the Center has taken a stance on population control. With overpopulation as arguably the biggest threat to our natural environment, it is essential that environmentalists and nonprofit groups are more vocal about this issue - the Center has been.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their report on the possible environmental impacts of the military buildup in the Pacific.

no changes.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the newsletters are well done.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

haven't met any.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do much more than they do now. Allow many more volunteers to be involved in the organization and foster an even larger environmental movement while expanding the already phenomenal work they do.

Ways to make it better...

the Center would have included the impacts to Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana islands in their report regarding Okinawa and the DOD military build-up. We needed all the help we could get to encourage public comment on the DEIA.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I would love to be the first CBC condom distributor in the CNMI! I've already signed up...please contact me!

I support a number of environmental organizations but the Center for Biological Diversity is clearly one of the most effective. Given my limited means, I donate as much as I can to them. As far as I know, they are the only environmental organization that has seriously taken on THE major environmental (as well as social) issue of our times: OVERPOPULATION.

We are very pleased with the Center for Biological Diversity. We , however, urge them to spend much more money and effort outside the Southwest.............specifically in New England. CFBD has an office in Vermont but seems not to support that entity in their legal work nor in their media efforts. They may not be aware of the vast financial and other support that would result from such an expansion of their efforts.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The Center for Biological Diversity uses the Endangered Species Act to protect and expand wildlife habitat by suing and threatening to sue Federal, State and local government entities. No other organization uses this approach.

This organizations is one of the best of their kind. Their campaigns are well organized, and their newsletter are informative and accurate. Their last campaign to raise awareness for the environment through condom distribution with endangered species on them was inspired.
