I love my Endangered Earth electronic newsletters! They keep me informed about the business side and political status of many issues I am interested in and would otherwise be unaware. It also provides super convenient opportunities to take action and let my voice be heard with the people that make a difference on the issues. Thanks bunch for all you do for the environment!

The wolves and the eagles tear down the amoebas of pork fat and myopic blundering. Less poetically, this is one of the most effective organizational structures non-profit or not.

the world is not ours. We are the world's property.

This is the organization that gets things done, they aren't all about propaganda like green-peace, nor do they squander away your donations by paying big bucks to the executives. The Center gets to the bottom of important issues, and they are the organization which investigates and takes legal actions against those government offices who are supposed to take of the environment, while informing its constituents. Please help protect our precious earth and vote on the Center for Biological Diversity!!!!

The Center for Biological Diversity is perhaps one of the most important nonprofits known to man, simply because it puts mankind in its place in the broader world of the creatures around us and the environment that we live in. What could be more important than learning about and striving to help maintain the balance of nature-- this is imperative to our own survival. I know from personal discussions with one of the staff that the Center is incredibly dedicated to this mission.

The Center for Biological Diversity came to the attention of San Francisco park advocates at a most profound time when we were fighting to retain some federal, state and city park lands from being taken over by off-leash dog activity. CBD showed us grass roots volunteers that there is a way to stand up to single-issue and very squeaky wheel persons who do not see the big picture or consider the long-term effects of their destructive behavior.

The Great!

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

daily activities in San Francisco's urban diversity.

spread the word - maybe go out into the community and help volunteers organize.

the are unflappable!

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

smart! curtious and courageous!

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

change the apathy and sense of loss and inability to act as seen on the street level.

Ways to make it better...

more people felt empowered to walk the talk.

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

burn out? Apathy from outside? A lack of political will to sustain them?

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

I sure hope they don't go away anytime soon.

The Center for Biological Diversity is a needed watchdog for endangered species and environmental law. The lawsuits they bring in this effort are won 90% of the time, attesting to the amazing effectiveness of this organization, it's hardworking and dedicated staff, and the many volunteers involved in this fight. Government entities are led to consider policies more carefully due to CBD oversight and forced to change unacceptable practices because of the work of the Center. The research and preparation that goes into these efforts is amazing. It's done on a very tight budget, but is possible because of the strong commitment and dedication to this worthy cause that everybody involved with the Center's work has.

I have enjoyed working with CBD over the past year on threats to species in Nevada as it relates to water use and the encroachment of development on habitat. Their lead in Nevada is a great voice for the Center. His prior work experience with local governments has proven invaluable in terms of gaining access and building power around theses issues. His hire was a great decision by CBD and they should be commended for their thoughtfulness in staffing this position. I also really enjoy hearing from industry and elected's when CBD gets involved in an issue in Las Vegas. CBD's presence raises the bar for accountability and provides a great basis for organizing. Thank you CBD!

Whether it's litigating on behalf of endangered species such as the polar bear or just raising awareness about things such as the botched capture of the last american jaguar, the Center leads the charge to protect all aspects, big and small, of the environment.

The Great!

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

protecting big species such as lynx, polar bears, jaguars, belugas, condors, and wolves as well as small niche species such as salamanders, turtles, bats, and snails. These little guys for the foundation of ecosystems and need our help too!

More feedback...

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

enthusiastic, skilled, and motivated.

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

save more species! There are thousands of lesser known but no less important species that could be saved with an extra 10 million bucks.
