The Center for Biological Diversity takes on every challenge to endangered species, unlike other groups that will not attempt to save insects, amphibians, plants, or species that don't photograph well. The staff that responds to phone inquiries are extremely well informed and have been very helpful and friendly, sounds like a fantastic place to work, which probably translates into a really productive work environment. When something gets you down or depressed, contribute some money to this group, it'll make you feel better

The Center for Biological Diversity is by far the best terrestrial environmental group in the U.S. It has saved more land and more species than probably all other groups put together. Furthermore, the Center does not waste money on exorbitant salaries; instead, our money is used to defend wilderness and wildlife. Finally, the Center takes strong stands on behalf of native species and their habitats and ecosystems, and is not in any way beholden to industries that profit from harming or destroying them.

If I could give to only one environmental group, this would be it!

The Center for Biological Diversity is the best environmental group in the U.S. that is open to the public, bar none! It has save more natural land and more species than any other group since its inception, and probably more than all other groups put together. And because it does not take donations from corporations, the Center does not compromise its positions, unlike so many of the other environmental groups.

The Great!

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

The Center sues constantly and wins 90% of its lawsuits. These suits protect species and ecosystems, and are extremely important in the battle to protect and restore the natural environment.

More feedback...

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

The Center has a no-compromise attitude that is quite refreshing and necessary, because the natural environment and other species have been so badly harmed already by human activities.

They are on top of the issues. They do great work in multiple fields and they seem to be the only group with the courage to come out and tackle human over-population of the planet! more

I love this organization. They are one of the few "environmental groups" brave enough to address the crisis of human over-population. Unless we deal with this problem, the planet is doomed.

I love the fact that the Center for Biological Diversity is an organization with a serious group of environmental lawyers. The species they care about range from the charismatic megafauna to the tiniest animals. I love their website that keeps me in touch from a distance with the issues of my beloved Southwest. What's not to like about a environmental group based in Tucson, Arizona that shares a polar bear's view? I especially love their weird videos. It keeps me coming back to their website. I only wish I could do more.

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.

The Center for Biological Diversity is so amazing. They provide detailed information about wildlife they are attempting to protect, and why this effort is so important. The CBD is so passionate about what they do and present convincing evidence for the energy they put into conservation of our vanishing critters, I just cannot look the other way. I get a lot of email from various organizations helping wildlife and the environment, and have to scan and discard much of it. Not so with the CBD...I always make a point to carefully read the excellent updates they send. I am a proud supporter of the Center for Biological Diversity!!

This organization is by far the most effective and sincere of any environmental group in the United States. They have helped me in sharing their ecological ethics and the very reason why I , and all other life forms are here on earth are not dissimilar, but so much similar. I am excited to partake in their constant activism and philosophy of "always fight for what's right." My donations to them go much further than any other group I can think of. The earth and all its mystery of creatures are cherished, not destroyed by the forces of progress by way of this group and its hard-working and dedicated staff. May they grow larger and stronger every day.

CBD is a lean, mean, working machine for the benefit of beleaguered plants, animals, and habitats in the US. They use the power of the courts and the laws to hold government agencies accountable for their actions. So much taxpayer money is diverted to programs that then become beholden to the lobbying actions of private business, and the corruption is glossed over or hidden. CBD exposes this fraud and waste and recalcitrance.
Center for Biological Diversity is also thankfully not of the Big Green bent, making secret deals with crooked politicians in exchange for lenience in other areas. They are one of the very few emphasizing the fundamental nature of the growth in human population that threatens all life on Earth. Without the slowing of the trajectory of human numbers, there is little hope for improving the outlook for other organisms.

I have worked and given to many environmental groups over the years, but CBD is one of the most successful in targeted use of funds, effectiveness in bringing suits to the courts and winning, and amassing factual scientific basis for exposing the egregious behavior of government and private industry trying to trash our shared Earthly commons. They do not spend funds on frivolous gifts and goodies like stuffed animals, calenders, notecards, and the like, but use their clout to go to bat for our Earth and its beleaguered wild places and animals. They are fearless in tackling the big, faceless corporate powers, and making useful alliances with like-minded groups---and crediting them when they do.

The Great!

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

seeing the many important wild lands and animals protected by the efforts in courts. Development by rapacious corporate profit models would have destroyed these things without CBD intervention

What is unique about this organization?

The targeted focus on legal protection to the highest levels of the law and no "fluff' campaigns to lure donations to the cause

Center for Biological Diversity is a tough, lean, litigating machine--going after the biggest foes with nary a twitch. They use as much of their funding as possible on the actual suits and nothing on "fripperies" like free mugs or t-shirts or big mail campaigns. They use the intent and word of the environmental laws to protect the ecosystems and animals that other groups compromise with deal-making. I also like their pragmatic approach to the devilishly difficult issue of human population growth and the fundamental basis for all other environmental and societal problems that stem from it. This is unlike any other environmental group I know, but ignoring the human numbers factor is to ignore the 'elephant in the living room'

The Great!

The organization is lean and mean and gets a lot of legal changes for the better in protecting wildlife and habitat. Having had a long career and interest in population issues (the crux of all envirnmental problems on the plantet!!) I heartily endorse the CBD's emphasis on this terrible, neglected, fundamental problem. The education, legal protection and reproductive health of the world's females must stand front and center in addressing the environmental degradation.

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

The sense that they will not sell out to any corporate or political entity. They take the unpopular but correct stand and stick to it.

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

Hire more legal clout than they already have and really meet the corporate powers on a level field. They could also afford to buy into companies stock to the degree that would give them real advantage in voting policy decisions.
