I used to donate to many environmental groups and over the years I have seen that my dollars go furthest with the Center for Biological Diversity. Then I had the opportunity to see our local representative from CBD in action and I was completely blown away by his ability to recall facts, present his arguments in a non-confrontational way, and present compelling outlines for better choices. That made a believer of me and caused me to sign up for monthly donations!

Animals, plants and children cannot defend or speak for themselves, and the Center for Biological Diversity is speaking for animals and habitat on my behalf. When I see the they are filing comments, suits or amicus briefs on behalf of threatened or endangered animals and their habitats, I do a fist-pump and send in a check. They pick the right battles, in my opinion, and get results. That is why I support them. When I see action instead of words, and results instead of promises, I am glad to continue whatever support I can offer.

One word: effective. While many other environmental organizations work to shift public opinion on environmental issues - a worthy but sometimes quixotic goal - CBD does it differently. They sue, and with amazing success, to save the planet one species (and sometimes ecosystem) at a time. A great thorn in the side of amoral business interests and immoral politicians when it comes to overexploitation of our few remaining resources. Thank Gaia for the Center for Biological Diversity. Hands down the best bang for your environmental buck.

I support the Center because they have an evident commitment to combatting enemies of the environment at the highest and most effective levels. They bring shady, corrupted initiatives into the light so that the general public can become involved and assist in stopping those that care more for money and power than preserving the fragile balance of the natural world. Their selflessness should be applauded by all.

Because of the Center for Biological Diversity's consistently great work on behalf of imperiled species and their habitat, my husband and I have chosen to include the organization in our trust--a portion of whatever we have when we leave this Earth will go to help the incredible people in this organization continue to professionally and effectively represent the species we care so much about. When I have presented the Center with questions, I have always received prompt and solid responses, and I am grateful that they never give up on the tough issues, regardless of obstacles and setbacks. I think the Center is one of the best environmental groups out there, if not THE best.

This group gets a huge amount of work done on a very tiny budget compared to other national groups. The people I've interacted with who work there are very passionate and pretty much work all the time for not very much money. I was especially impressed when they helped stop endangered sea turtles from being burned alive during clean-up during the BP oil spill. And they're still focused on the spill's effects and making sure offshore drilling doesn't cause such a horrible spill later on. Like in the Arctic.

The Center for Biological Diversity has always been one of the most influential groups out there, actually affecting change in government policies. And they're really successful at stopping bad projects from hurting animals and plants that might otherwise go extinct. The Center helps save ALL species, not just endangered gray wolves and polar bears but also beetles and thistles. All species are necessary to save if we want to stop our planet's ecosystems from unraveling. And us people depend on those ecosystems for our own survival.

I would try to help it grow even more without letting it compromise its current ideals. Amazingly, it's already grown a lot and hasn't compromised at all from what I can see.

This is a great organization - very focused and efficient, and very effective at achieving their aims. Their campaigns have ranged from those addressing the larger threats we face today (obvious example being the Deepwater Horizon well), to the focused and local, to the creative, such as distributing endangered species condoms! All around a terrific non-profit, and my favorite, as environmental organizations go.
