Review from Guidestar
February 3, 2011

The Center for Biological Diversity sends out the most informative, concise, and hard-hitting newsletter of all the environmental organizations. In a short read, you can take action with lawmakers and also learn the latest on species rights and individual populations in trouble. They take action, and they do not wait until it is too late. I am a PhD biologist and I appreciate their no-nonsense approach. Their motto is "Because Life is Good".

I can always count on the Center for Biological Diversity to stand up for wildlife in peril. They use legal and political advocacy tactics to get results efficiently and effectively.

The Center for Biological Diversity is one of the leaders in this country for taking decisive action to save endangered species. Without their work, hundreds of species would be extinct or going extinct, and corporations would go unchecked in their development and destruction of endangered species habitat.

I was particularly impressed with their work with the oil spill in the Gulf. They were instrumental in uncovering the government collusion before and during the spill, and in being effective watchdogs during the cleanup process.

The Center for Biological Diversity does not back down when it comes to protecting creatures large and small. They have some of the brightest and most passionate scientists and lawyers working at all cost to preseve biodiversity on our planet. They are one of the most effective conservation organizations and I always feel very confident contributing to them.

The Center's newsletter provides one of the very few places where one can find out the details of what is really happening. In an age where sound bites dominate the major news outlets, the Center for Biological Diversity is an essential source of information to keep democracy functioning and give imperiled species a chance at continuing to survive.

I enjoy every newsletter! Very informative read! Stories of hope, success, and action. Easy to use website allows me to share with others important information and actions to take. I can't express how important organizations such as this are in defending the earth's precious abundance. In today's society, legal action is a successful means of peaceful protection of what we need and love, from the careless greed of corporations and senseless destruction of everything beautiful and sacred. I love everything about the Center for Biological Diversity and if I won the lottery I just might give them most of it.

The Center for Biodiversity is the only environmental activist group I know that is on top of all legislative & judicial developments and uses the courts to defend the environment against corporate & government infringement and actually WINS THEIR CASES. They were the only PAC I knew who was warning folks not to support the most recent "Clean" Energy bill because it was actually going to strip away the protections of the Clean Air Act which is the only tool we've got for regulating greenhouse gas emissions and averting climate change before it it too late to stop runaway changes that could make this planet uninhabitable.

These folks are personally holding back the growth in greenhouse gas emissions, far better than I can do working one house and one building at a time.

Fund the Center for Biodiversity instead of the Defense Department. If we stop coercing the rest of the world to get more than our fair share of energy, we'd have a lot less need for our military.

My organization did a three-year campaign with CBD (successful!) against a proposed coal mine and railroad in New Mexico and Arizona. CBD was top-notch: the staff delivered consistently what they promised and the work was excellent, creative and relentless. CBD never lost sight of the goal nor fell for arguments to

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

It's laser-like focus on saving habitat for endangered species with no pretension of being a Big Green group with fancy offices, highly paid staff, and delusions of grandeur. CBD never green washes nor gets distracted with trying to be liked and "safe."

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

All dedicated, well trained, and a joy to work with.

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

Save even more habitat and species.

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.

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.

I am a professional biologist and have long known that human overpopulation is the Mother of All our problems. CBD is the only major environmental organization that declares this and is doing something about it. And I love your lawsuits!
