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."

Reviews for Center for Biological Diversity Inc

Role: General Member of the Public
Rating: 5 stars  

The Center for Biological Diversity's Endangered Earth online newsletter is stellar. In succinct summaries (with links to more detail ) it brings attention to environmental/habitat/species issues, how you can help make a difference (e.g., signing petitions), and where efforts in conservation have been successful.

It is clear to me that the Center for Biological Diversity is passionate about their work, and are able to use their resources effectively to make a difference. Please support their efforts!

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.

Living far away in Istanbul, Turkey, I appreciate the work of these folk at the Centre for Biological Diversity in keeping me updated on issues that matter to me - on the protection of the planet and its species. Keep up the good work guys! Rob Lewis

I get e-mail from from too many environmental protection groups to keep up with but I always read mail from the CfBD. I feel they target the right individuals & departments to achieve the greatest results.

The Center takes on many challenges and is successful much of the time. Their newsletter keeps me informed (including an article about an endangered species that I had never heard anything about before that lives in my own city!) Their tireless work gives me hope and motivation.

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

reading e-mails and newsletters. I am encouraged by their many victories.

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

I don't know of any improvements to be made.

I began singing many online petitons a few years ago.
This particular site goes above and beyond to aid and protect our wild animal individuals not to disparage any of the myriad sites that have only the best interests of our beautiful animal kingdom both wild and domestic.
I am proud to be a part of this site and the many others that allow me to participate singing online petitions.

The Center for Biogical Diversity is one of my favorite environmental groups. They fight tooth and nail to protect our environment and the animals by going to court and not giving up. And they win more often than not. With so much destruction by the corporations and special interest groups who care only about their own greedy agendas, it's great to know that the Center is on the front lines every day doing everything they can to help keep the environment and the animals safe.

I love the Center for Biological Diversity because they are aggressive in defending the animals and our environment. When they go to court, they win most of the time. When they don't, they keep fighting. Whenever I get down about all the destruction caused by human greed and ignorance, I remember the Center is always on the job, battling the evil forces.

The Center for Biological Diversity is probably my favorite environmental organization because they are the ones on the front lines protecting our wildlife and environmental in court. They continue to file lawsuits when the US govt. says it will protect an endangered species, and then refuses to follow through. I really think that without the Center, there would be fewer animals saved from extinction.

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

wish they could have unlimited funds for their work. They are awesome!

I live in Australia and I really appreciate getting newsletters from Biological Diversity Inc. It keep me informed about issues occurring in the United States and the petitions that are often attached to the newsletters help me feel more like a global citizen. They are obviously a very busy and productive organisation because they are involved in a lot of areas, from individual species to climate change issues. I find that they are a very reputable source of information and a great defender of the environment.

The Center for Biological Diversity has motivated me to take numerous actions on behalf of wildlife and the environment. They are one of only a few environmental advocacy groups that encourage their members to eat less meat and go vegan. Animal agriculture is barbaric and a leading cause of the greenhouse gas pollution that is causing a dangerous global warming that threatens not only wildlife but humans too.

The Center for Biological Diversity deserves great credit for encouraging their members to reduce their consumption of animal products. Animal agriculture is responsible for significant deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions that are devastating the Earth's environment and driving a dangerous global warming. Adopting a vegan diet is a win, win, win for the environment, human health, and of course all the billions of animals killed cruelly every year in factory farms.

I believe The Center for Biological Diversity does more to preserve wild animal and plant habitats, protect endangered species and public lands, and promote a sustainable human population than any other single group. And they are a lean an efficient organization deserving of everyone's generous support.

CBDI consistently addresses environmental issues with legal action and/or campaigns for public action to preserve native species and their habitats.

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

have them more f recently expose the overpopulation impact degrading our environment

CBD is an inspiration and a model for environmentalists. Their work is wide-ranging, tough-minded, and relentless. This is the kind of organization that gives the world hope.

I have been following the center for awhile. They keep people informed of what is really happening and tell it like it is. The center works hard to fight big corporations in court for our wildlife. I have donated and believe the money is going to help our animals and their habitats.
I encourage you to see for yourself.
