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

The Center for Biological Diversity is on it! They keep me informed about critical issues and make it easy for me to take action to change it. Additionally, it's easy to share links with Pinterest, FB and Twitter to get others involved as well. And they're also fun (Endangered Species Condoms, anyone?) and progressive. They do good work and are one of my favorites.

A wonderful non-profit organization, dedicated to the preservation, conservation, and defense of all forms of life, and our planet, as a whole. I am very proud and honored to play a significant role in the success of its campaigns, etc., especially those that bring about much-needed change in the way that man treats its precious animals. Thank you to all the amazing people at the Center for Biological Diversity, for all that you do to ensure a better tomorrow for everyone and everything without a voice.

The Center for Biological Diversity provides me the very best information about recent activity of governments, non-profits and others who are either forwarding or retarding the health and diversity of our species. Its actions in court are important for combating irresponsible organizations in their rush to exterminate some of the most important creatures on the planet.

I love this organization for too many reasons to list. First and foremost, however, I get the sense that the CBD is ready to jump in to defend our natural world no matter what their current workload might be. I find the Center's indefatigable attitude personally inspiring. Whenever I buy a Powerball ticket I imagine myself inviting Kieran Suckling out for an hour long lunch with a monster check in my pocket. Kieran and the CBD's entire staff have earned my respect and gratitude. The CBD is one of this country's gems.
