The Center for Biological Diversity does a fantastic job! I am extremely impressed with their performance and perservence. I recently increased my monthly donation amount because of their strong performance. I wish more enviromental organizations could be like them. I look forward to their emails every week, and to seeing what they have accomplished thus far. I like how they stick up for what they believe in, and never give up the fight, no matter how long the odds. They keep the government and developers in line, and try to make them do the right thing. They use the court system for the good of the country and the environment. Too often government agencies get away with things because no one is watching, and the Center IS watching.

The Great!

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

Their fight against the WOPR in Oregon. I live in Oregon and hike in the federal forests all the time. I'm so happy that they fought back against the Bush administration's horrible plan.

Ways to make it better...

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

Create some local chapters so it was easier to get involved. I would love to volunteer with the Center, but they never seem to have any opportunities for that. I would love to see a local chapter in Oregon!

More feedback...

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

Their emails keeping me updated about what they're doing, and their victories!

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

Save a lot of species from extinction, protect our forests from massive clearcuts, put some significant brakes on urban sprawl, and put some real teeth in the cap and trade bill.

Ways to make it better...

See below.

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

They need more money, and more lawyers.

The Center for Biological Diversity has a great email newsletter and I get about 50 of such a week and the fact that I read this one is significant. It is organized clearly and teaches me a lot. They also help me take action regarding concerns that are important to me. Every time I have interacted with the staff they have been really polite and helpful. My friends kids donated money to them for their family holiday giving (choice of one animal organization and The Center won as they affected the most varied species of animals)and the kids received a hand signed note of thanks from the whole office and they were thrilled and proud. It was a great first experience with charity. I was so glad that The Center took the time to do this.

The Great!

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

a meeting on the East coast office opening, the newsletter information, the endangered species ringer downloads, the take action opportunities, and most important to me their continued and varied actions on many fronts to save endangered species.

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

the newsletter (email) the ringer downloads responsiveness to questions I have asked them

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

extremely knowledgeable and polite

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

do even more of its amazing work protecting endangered species. I am engaged with over 100 animal welfare organizations and I truly respect and trust the importance of the Center's work for species protection more than any other in the U.S.

Ways to make it better...

nothing to add

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

Big business greed and the general public's ignorance about the value and danger to American wildlife and the importance of species diversity.

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

I really love the work of The Center for Biological Diversity and try to give them as much as I can. They are doing as much as they can for causes of species protection. They need all they help they can get to give all the help that they can.

CBD is the only environmental group I completely trust and respect. I've followed their efforts and accomplishments for the past ten years. The progress they've made in preserving wildlife and open space is astonishing, especially compared to other groups who have tried mightily, yet not achieved their goals. It is always frustrating when other people don't understand the importance of something. I think CBD has made huge strides in helping people understand that it really does matter if some obscure species of frog or insect disappears. This is a complex situation, yet CBD communicates the issues simply and effectively, in a way that doesn't turn people off. This is the only group I make contributions to every single year, no matter what.

The Great!

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

local wilderness areas being saved from development.

I went out on a friday night at a local nightclub and it was fun to give some population facts to others while handing out the condoms. Most people don't even consider the idea of population control to help the environment even though that is one of the best ways to do it.

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

It was a fun thing to do on a friday night. The staff was very flexible and didn't have restrictions for when and where I should hand out the Endangered Species Condoms.

Handing out endangered species condoms was inspirational. Only one person refused one. He kept saying

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

Its absolute fearlessness of the Federal Government. The CBD is taking on controversial issues, such as overpopulation, and bringing them to the forefront of the public's awareness. That alone is worth its weight in gold.

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

Stop the coal and oil industries from trashing the planet in their greed for profits. With that much money, it could support the efforts of scientists to find a clean, efficient energy source.

I'm a wildlife biologist, conservation advocate, and habitat restoration volunteer, who has been continually impressed with the legal, political, and environmental scope of such a small and mighty non-profit! This organization is continually challenging government leaders and agencies, big business, and everyday individuals to take a look at the implications our actions have on the earth around us--and on ourselves. They are not afraid to use legal action repeatedly to stop seriously imperiled animals and habitat from vanishing forever, nor do they shy away from the socio-political issues, such as our unsustainable world population explosion, that cause great species decline. The CBD's work has had direct, positive results in wildlife conservation, and in education of everyday people on the intrinsic importance of biologcal diversity. Therefore, I am a proud supporter of their amazing efforts.

The Great!

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

seeing action alerts I took that later helped preserve wildlife and/or habitat. CBD's ability to get so many people involved online puts pressure on decision makers, corporations, and politicians to act responsibly toward the environment.

More feedback...

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

They infuse some humor into the difficult work they do and show you the positive effects of our activism.

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

Very kind and willing to take the time to engage in conservation discussions either in person or online.

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

Make a greater impact on reproductive education worldwide; expose more of what government and corporate leaders do behind closed doors that puts money far ahead of animal and human health; have more international impact on conservation.

The Center for Biological Diversity is one of my favorite non-profit organizations because you can be a supporter even when money is tight. I say this because of the plethora of opportunities they offer to get involved in species protection by sending letters, making phone calls, signing petitions, and even handing out endangered-species condoms to raise awareness of the negative effects of over-population. When I was laid off from my job last year, I was able to continue to support the Center's efforts through activism, even when I couldn't write a check. Now that I am employed once again, I feel like I never took a break from being an advocate for animals and the environment.

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

the targeted email notifications about actions I can take locally and nationally by contacting representatives and decision-makers.

As a person with a lifelong concern for earth's ever-diminishing inventory of plant and animal species -- and the natural ecosystems where they live -- which now constitutes an extinction crisis, I have come to know that the Center for Biological Diversity is remarkably effective at rescuing U.S. endangered species from extinction. Many decades ago the U.S. Congress passed the Endangered Species Act, and most of the Center's work is simply making U.S. government administrations act to protect endangered species in accordance with the provisions of this act -- which they frequently have not and still do not always.

The Great!

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

visiting biological preserves that were created in response to successful lawsuits against government agencies by the Center.

More feedback...

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

prevent even more of our precious natural biological heritage here in the U.S. from becoming extinct.

I admire their tirelessness in pursuing meaningful protection for our wild lands and animal and plant life. I also think they have been especially effective in gaining protection, winning important court battles and educating the public about new and important issues in conservation and wildlife protection.

The Great!

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

the empowerment and voice they offer to the public.

More feedback...

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

that they give me an easy way to speak with lawmakers and other authorities and executives. They also bring news stories I had not heard of to my attention and do a lot of the tedious but important work for the good of all of us.

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

kind, thoughtful and optimistic.

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

effectively improve things for many of the important issues facing the environment today, from mountaintop removal coal mining to excessive offshore oil drilling. I see that they are quite effective even when it comes to tough issues.
