Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals, Biological & Life Sciences, Environment, Forest Conservation, Land Resources Conservation, Protection of Endangered Species

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

I have been a silent follower of the Centre (British spelling, sorry, as I'm an English teacher) for some years, maybe since its inception. I look forward to the newsletter, as it keeps me in touch with the natural world. Living in one of the major metropolises on our beleaguered planet, Istanbul, Turkey, I can feel a connection with the great American outdoors, and the work of others striving to protect it.

Center for Biological Diversity is one of the most clear-sighted and determined of all the wildlife/environmental groups that I am aware of. Their record for filing the critical lawsuits on behalf of animal welfare is the highest. Joy Knobloch, President, Township Wildlife Society, Manhattan, IL 60442

I love the Center for Biological Diversity! If you care about wildlife, conservation, and protecting endangered species, this charity deserves your support. It is also the only environmental group with the guts to speak openly about how human overpopulation is negatively affecting the environment and causing a mass extinction event right now. Creative programs like the endangered species condom hand-out make this charity stand out. They have been successful in helping to establish endangered species status for dozens of in-need critters, and I will continue to support them in the fight to protect them!

I have long been an environmental supporter for saving the planet and the wildlife that lives with us here. Over the years I have taken an interest in many organizations that say they are committed to fighting degradation. In fact, though, The Center for Biological Diversity is the single organization that I have discovered actually does the research, takes the action and continues to fight even when they lose battles. Also, they spend their funds on the fight, not on frills, high salaries and fancy offices. They do the work, day after day and year after year. Wish I could clone them. For these reason, I put my money where my mouth is by donating monthly to support their efforts and dream someday of winning the lottery so I can make a giant donation.

In addition to being a donor, I respond to every request those at the Center make for me to take action to contact government agencies, congress, etc. knowing that the work of members is critical to the Center's success.

The Center for Biological Diversity does a lot of extremely important work on our behalf and on behalf of wildlife and our environment. It gives people a place to go to voice their concerns about the environment and wildlife.

It helps to educate the public and the government about concerns vital to us all and it does based on sound science

The Center for Biological Diversity does a great deal of good. It works to keep the public accurately informed about wildlife and the environment. It gets the facts straight.

Whatever the Center for Biological Diversity espouses checks out, on further research, to be worthy and important. They use their funds wisely and seem to us to be a model of rectitude.
