CBD is willing to take on unpopular causes that are nonetheless right, such as population control and stopping the slaughter of wolves. I am always impressed when I receive their eNews by the number of accomplishments since the last newsletter. They really get results!

CBD is by far my favorite charity. They use the law to make the planet a more life-friendly place, focusing on species protection, slowing global warming, and stopping environmentally perilous development. They are also extremely effective, winning approximately 90% of all the cases they file. I give generously and often.

I support a number of environmental organizations but the Center for Biological Diversity is clearly one of the most effective. Given my limited means, I donate as much as I can to them. As far as I know, they are the only environmental organization that has seriously taken on THE major environmental (as well as social) issue of our times: OVERPOPULATION.

We are very pleased with the Center for Biological Diversity. We , however, urge them to spend much more money and effort outside the Southwest.............specifically in New England. CFBD has an office in Vermont but seems not to support that entity in their legal work nor in their media efforts. They may not be aware of the vast financial and other support that would result from such an expansion of their efforts.

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

The Center for Biological Diversity uses the Endangered Species Act to protect and expand wildlife habitat by suing and threatening to sue Federal, State and local government entities. No other organization uses this approach.

The Center for Biological Diversity does a fantastic job! I am extremely impressed with their performance and perservence. I recently increased my monthly donation amount because of their strong performance. I wish more enviromental organizations could be like them. I look forward to their emails every week, and to seeing what they have accomplished thus far. I like how they stick up for what they believe in, and never give up the fight, no matter how long the odds. They keep the government and developers in line, and try to make them do the right thing. They use the court system for the good of the country and the environment. Too often government agencies get away with things because no one is watching, and the Center IS watching.

The Great!

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

Their fight against the WOPR in Oregon. I live in Oregon and hike in the federal forests all the time. I'm so happy that they fought back against the Bush administration's horrible plan.

Ways to make it better...

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

Create some local chapters so it was easier to get involved. I would love to volunteer with the Center, but they never seem to have any opportunities for that. I would love to see a local chapter in Oregon!

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

Their emails keeping me updated about what they're doing, and their victories!

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

Save a lot of species from extinction, protect our forests from massive clearcuts, put some significant brakes on urban sprawl, and put some real teeth in the cap and trade bill.

Ways to make it better...

See below.

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

They need more money, and more lawyers.

CBD is the only environmental group I completely trust and respect. I've followed their efforts and accomplishments for the past ten years. The progress they've made in preserving wildlife and open space is astonishing, especially compared to other groups who have tried mightily, yet not achieved their goals. It is always frustrating when other people don't understand the importance of something. I think CBD has made huge strides in helping people understand that it really does matter if some obscure species of frog or insect disappears. This is a complex situation, yet CBD communicates the issues simply and effectively, in a way that doesn't turn people off. This is the only group I make contributions to every single year, no matter what.

The Center for Biological Diversity is one of my favorite non-profit organizations because you can be a supporter even when money is tight. I say this because of the plethora of opportunities they offer to get involved in species protection by sending letters, making phone calls, signing petitions, and even handing out endangered-species condoms to raise awareness of the negative effects of over-population. When I was laid off from my job last year, I was able to continue to support the Center's efforts through activism, even when I couldn't write a check. Now that I am employed once again, I feel like I never took a break from being an advocate for animals and the environment.

I am pleased that the Center for Biological Diversity continues to work to restore endangered species protection to the wolves of Yellowstone and Montana. Wolves belong in and improve those ecosystems. A lot of effort and money went to re-establish these wolves and much of the benefit has been undone by some very bad decisions by the Dept of the Interior allowing over 500 of these wolves to be shot this year.

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

They address issues that are not easy and take a lot of work and legal challenges. They often win to benefit wildlife, including creatures both great and small, well-known and obscure.

I rely upon the "center" for information and action opportunities that enable me to protect our environment and push our country in a more green, sustainable direction. My only regret is that the newsletter that updates me on legal actions taken by the 'center', information detailing events or situations do not provide more mechanisms for taking action in support of the Center's legal efforts, i.e., petitions, email, letters, and phone calls. Keep up the great work!

The Great!

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

many ways. I have become a more active environmentalist. The progress we have made gives me hope for the future of our species. And, the Center's efforts have inspired me to share my feelings and beliefs with others--who in turn have become involved.
