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:

I have been a conservationist for half a century or so... I still have my emblematic "patch" from the original Earth Day in 1972. Though not a lawyer myself, I was present at the birth of Conservation Law, and personally knew David Sive, John Hamilton Adams, and other lawyers who initiated this. I remember the photo of David Sive on the front page of the Sunday NY Times, in the early 70s, in a report on the first major environmental law test before the U.S. Supreme Court -- a suit endeavoring to protect sea otters off Alaska from practice shelling by the U.S. Navy.... I have the highest opinion of the Center for Biological Diversity. BRAVO!

I'm not sure if anything more can be said about the stellar work the Center for Biological Diversity is engaged in. There are a lot of groups out there who collect a lot of money for online petitions or advertising, with opaque management and questionable results. I see the Center on the ground taking legal action, bringing gains for our collective future that we can be proud of. I chose to become a quarterly donor so that they can continue their amazing work.

Of all the non-profits I have donated to or worked with, I rate the Center for Biological Diversity at the top. Their legal efforts on behalf of threatened and endangered species, using existing law to force higher levels of protection, have been the most effective actions taken to preserve the lands, waters, plants, and wildlife of our country since the signing of the Endangered Species Act. If protecting nature is your cause, there is no better organization you could contribute to!

A long supporter of many national environmental groups, I started to also support the Center For Biological Diversity, because of their focus on protecting wildlife without giving in to a quick compromise that other groups do, at the expense of not really providing the protections wildlife needs.

Love this Nonprofit because every living thing is a big deal to CBD...every one! I read my news letters, take action immediately, and see new results from past situations. Keep up the amazing work to protect our Earth from the tiniest to the largest! Yes, I donate!!! :D. I've enclosed a few pics of our rescued fur babies and our girls who are much older now. My reasons for stepping up, getting involved, becoming vegetarian, and sharing information. Thank God they do their part as well, but the fur babies maybe not as much...;D!!

This sums it up: "Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species..." The CBD is one of the most effective environmental organisation I've supported--mostly, I believe, because of their unique means of using the law to require government organisations to do what they're supposed to be doing!

I have been supporting the Center (I'm in the UK, but will use the American spelling) for many years. Their campaigns have informed, depressed and elated me so much that this year I quit my job teaching in medical schools to gain a postgraduate degree in Environmental Science and change careers to work on habitat conservation and restoration. I salute the dedicated people at the Center for Biological Diversity and thank all their supporters.

The Center provides the most comprehensive in-depth analysis and action on all environmental threats of any organization to which I contribute. I can't recommend it more highly as an instrument for the preservation of life as we know it.

Thank you Center!

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.
