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.

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.

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.

This is one of my very favorite environmental organizations. They do great science and use all the available tools, from writing letters to negotiating and legal action, to attain their objectives. They have a great and well-deserved reputation for getting the facts right and for being effective. They get involved in all the most important issues. They really accomplish a lot. I am very proud to support the causes that this organization informs me about.

This is one of the few non-profit environmental organisations that takes population growth seriously, ironically, in a funny way. It distributes condoms with amusing titles. How better to get the message across that human population growth destroys habitat which in turn destroys other species, or makes them vulnerable. The the regular reports are well presented so you get the message, even if you don't have time to read the whole story. CBD really is one of my favourite organisations.

I'm a 77 y/o godless old man and the Center is the best, most consistent of all the enviro organizations I have belonged to. It is the only one that still fights population growth. The Sierra Club, Audubon, etc. have all wimped out to big donors on this issue but not the Center.
I have been a member since the beginning when we were fighting the scopes on Mt. Graham and the early threats to the San Pedro R. and I am amazed at how consistent their fight for the "wild" has been over these many years. Hope they can keep up the fight long after I'm gone. I don't know how many current members realize how much we owe to Dr, Robin Silver for the decades of support and energy he put in fighting the good fight and to keep the Center going . Thanks Kieran and thanks Robin and Dr. Bob W who is no longer among us. I'm tipping a red ale to all you good folks. Cheers, Old Jim
