This organization really knows how to work! They dig in and get the job done. The people work tirelessly to help wildlife and the environment. I've been especially impressed with what I've seen in regard to their wolf protection programs. Please keep up the GREAT work! The animals are counting on you!

I love that they save animals large and small. We are only making ourselves extinct when we end up having no clean water and we decimate our own food sources. The Center gets it-some people think animals need population control-it's actually us humans that need population control!

I only discovered the Center fo Biological Diversity, Inc. in the last few years but I'm amazed at what they do and accomplish saving our waterways, environment and animals. I've learned so much about animals and plants that I never even knew existed! Through their work and newletters, I now realize the human impact that makes animals and plants extinct, waters polluted, and the air polluted We are making ourselved an extinct species by destroying everything we need to survive. What a wonderful organization to help us realize what we are doing to our own environment. Keep up the great work!!

I support the CBD because they are highly effective in attaining their goals, in making the public aware of the issues, in providing several avenues for the public to support their efforts, and in their management of the monies they raise. I support several wildlife and wilderness funds, but this in one of the most important to me, along with the National Resources Defense Fund.

I would provide a way for believers/supporters to make the CBD campaigns more easily "translated" to the newspapers, i.e., provide talking points and sample letters for us to send to the newspapers, radio stations, etc.

These people are all business--and they know their business better than any other group. They are effective most where it counts most--in the courts and chambers of Washington. Extremely capable staff. Anyone who believes in their veins that all life is one on this Earth and warrants equal consideration and worth--for our sake and their's, should donate what they can for the future of our planet and all its inhabitants. I only wish there was another group like the Center whose efforts were worldwide instead of only United States.

They waste too much money on litigation, not enough on setting aside lands and conservation efforts for species.

I am a retired person with very little funds to donate to worthy organizations. The Center for Biological Diversity wins my respect and my donations by being lean, focused, and effective in their fight to protect species from extinction and to maintain healthy environments for them to thrive in.

By far, the CBD gets more bang for my donation dollars than any other conservation group I can think of. I used to donate to many such groups, but with dwindling resources I am only able to focus my donations on a very few. The CBD is at the top of my list. They get more done than many groups much larger and with far greater financial resources. I happily and whole-heartedly endorse their efforts.

The utilization of lawsuits by the Center for Biological Diversity is a very effective strategy to protect as many species as practically possible using our current legal system. I find their e-mails wonderfully informative but succinct, which allows me to be knowledgeable on the plight of many animals and plants regardless of my busy schedule. This charity is par non one of the best out there. Support them to protect the wildlife and our own well being.

The Center for Biological Diversity has developed effective plans, legal actions and advocacy programs to defend and protect the most vulnerable creatures from rapacious corporations, noneffective government policies and frankly plain human ignorance.
The Center always stands for the best
policies and actions to protect all of the endangered species that live in our land. They are one of the few organizations that have the valor to speak the truth about the clear and present danger of overpopulation, regardless of the popularity, or lack thereof, of this issue.
The newsletter from this center is an amazing source of information and conveys, in a very accessible format, the urgency and the severity of the challenges faced by our environment.
If all private and public entities would perform with the civility, fairness, intelligence, and love for their labor, as the Center for Biological Diversity continuously demonstrates in everything they do, then our planet would have a chance to become a healthy, beautiful and equitable place for all living things.

The Great!

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

Protecting our Desert Tortoise, from ranchers illegally grazing cattle in the Nevada Desert. Condemning, and challenging, the shameless green washing of Nevada Power's proposed wind farm in a ecologically sensitive area close to the Great Basin National Park, which will imperil the Sage Grouse and the migratory travels of 3 million bats.

This charity is very effective and is scientifically based. They do not waste money on huge executive salaries. Nor do they compromise with polluting corporations. They are courageous and are making a significant difference for our environment and the animals that are struggling to survive in it.

Make it grow to become stronger.

Understanding completely the losses being suffered by animals, plants, ecosystems, CBD has developed a strong legal and scientific approach to more of the necessary protection than any other nonprofit.
Beginning in the vision of environmental activists, like Founding Director Kieran Suckling,
the organization duels fiercely for the living earth, against logging, mining, and fossil fuel industries.
One of the three large organizations to which I donate, because of their effectiveness and interest in both local and worldwide environmental and species preservation issues, I spend time writing here as I believe them to be the most effective (although their reputation is fast making them the most vilified by consumptive and destructive users of public lands).
I further believe that the only trustworthy individuals you can find in this work, are those with credentials like that of the original EarthFirst! people, who made no compromise in defense of the vulnerable natural world.
CBD works with Earthjustice litigators, with local and tribal biologists, environmental lawyers, and many, many smaller such organizations (protecting areas as small as the Proposed RIshardson Grove redwood-killing road expansion to entire oceans, from the plight of the ecologically vital Native Gray Wolf to tiny desert fish populations), establishing a coalition or partnership to firmly counter the corrupt government actions and unethical corporate thieves of the world's natural life and heritage.

Ways to make it better...

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

more widely advertise for supporters - there are far more people who are recognizing the value and losses sustained by a culture of growth and exploitation, than ever before. CBD is underfunded for the vast scope of their work.

Center for Biological Diversity spotlights perhaps the greatest number of species under assault through human arrogation and development of lands and waters. While many organizations attempt to slow the extinction of various species, CBD is most active in litigation and in alerting volunteers and advocates to relatively unknown endangered plants and animals.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the clarity of exposition of such issues as the impending climate bill, and where Las Vegas is getting its water/how devastating that is to Great Basin species.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do yet more in courts to stem the cascade of habitat fragmentation and extractive industry pollution of US lands and waters.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time and money.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the recognition by corporate users and exploiters of its efficacy in slowing and halting theirdestructive development.
