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.

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.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

CBD has impressed me without exception year after year. Their compassion toward all creatures and their concern for the habitat of all living things is genuine and tireless. Through CBD, I have been made aware of many environmental and animal welfare issues I never would have learned about otherwise. The organization's communications are clear and highly informative, and they are never "commercialized", nor are they burdensome to my inbox. I always research organizations before I support them, and CBD consistently receives high ratings and is referenced by well-regarded scientists and champions of animals and the Earth. I am continually amazed by CBD's abilities to uncover areas of need and to devote its personnel's energies to tackling the problems in the most effective ways possible. And these noble people never stop fighting to protect natural resources and all of our world's precious species. I am deeply grateful for the kindness, intelligence, and tenacity of everyone who works on behalf of the Center for Biological Diversity.

CBD's work in Az has been fantastic one if not the best non-profit action-oriented environmental agencies in the country.

The Center for Biological Diversity is a "Get it done" environmental activism group. They take anybody to court and hold their feet to the fire. The Center wades thru the bureaucratic walls and delivers a legal punch that cannot be denied.

CBD's mission to protect species and this planet's biodiversity is a noble one, albeit controversial at times. Despite the pushback from many interest groups, the Center for Biological Diversity continues to prove to be extremely successful, overcoming the odds. Well done CBD. Please keep up the great work protecting those on this planet without a voice.

This group works tirelessly to protect our environment and animals from the greed and corruption that is filling our government and leaders --heck private people now have more power to use public lands for their personal profit than the public realizes --cattle, sheep, and fossil fuel explorers are telling the BLM what they can do and can't do --they have more private animals on our public lands yet still want to eliminate the wild horses, nesting birds, and other animals and plants on OUR land--thank GOD there is this wonderful organization that is a REAL non profit --not like the scams of Citizen's United,etc. --

CBD is always "on top of things." I find their communications to be particularly good - the succinct summaries of current issues in the weekly email gives me an overview, and I know I can check for more details on their website or other sites they link to. I am lucky enough to have worked with CBD staff on issues in my local community, and have the utmost regard for their dedication, skill, patience, and perseverance. I believe in their effectiveness enough to have become a monthly donor, and would raise the amount if I could!

I have donated to the Center for many years now. It is a remarkable advocate for the web of life that sustains us all. Unlike many environmental organizations, it takes the holistic view that all species are important because all are linked. And so it fights, persistently and strategically, to preserve every one that it can -- decade after decade, seemingly indefatigably, against powerful moneyed interests and shortsighted governmental bureaucracies alike. In short, Kieran Suckling and his crew are among the heroes that our environment so desperately needs during this time of crisis, on the precipice of the sixth mass extinction in the history of the world -- the only one caused by humans.

I love this group. It does what it claims. I wish the world would understand biodiversity, but it doesn't Not yet! Keeo yo the great work folks!

They're one of the few, if not the only, nonprofit to acknowledge that human over population is at the root of the massive animal extinctions, global warming and the world-wide environmental crisis we are facing, and to actually try to do something about it. (Thanks for the condoms, guys!) We need more nonprofits that are willing to tell it like it is.

These guys do great work and their excellent newsletters are informative and give me ways to help out. I also really appreciate that they address the problem of overpopulation - not many environmental groups are that brave.

This group is the best when it comes to using every tool possible to defend wildlife and the environment. They get results and the world is a better place because of them.

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

by feeling that maybe there is some hope for this world after all.

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

not make any recommendations for change.

Center For Biological Diversity Inc is an amazing organization who truly and deeply cares for the environment and the animals and endanger species. Because of Center For Biological Diversity Inc I have become aware of many issues and the unfairness of laws and actions inflicted on the animals due to the greed of companies.

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

I haven't seen personally the results, but I read the posts posted by Center on the lawsuits and actions they've taken on behalf the environment.

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

Nothing!
