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.

Reviews for Center for Biological Diversity Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

The Center for Biological Diversity is a powerhouse. They have an out-sized impact on the environmental movement and often stand as the only organization blocking damage to our lands and animals. They will fight for any piece of land and any animal, regardless of how 'glamorous' or well-known it is. They have this success because they are willing to fight in court. They are tough and they are feared by polluters, because they win ... A LOT. I'm proud to support them.

The Center for Biological Diversity is the only environmental organization that I know of with the courage to take on the fundamental root cause of our environmental problems, human overpopulation. I hope all the others will take a cue and follow suit.

put it in charge of all of our environmental issues, replacing bungling government agencies and the proliferation of hostile anti-environmental individuals who hold the size of their personal bank accounts above all else

I support the CBC because they effectively challenge policies that are damaging to our natural environment and its inhabitants, and do so in a proactive, practical manner. They get the job done! CBC is no-nonsense with a grassroots feel. I feel confident that my money is going directly toward supporting the issues that are important to me and I always receive immediate, personal acknowledgement of my donations. I am so impressed by the CBC's work and organization that I donate a percentage of my side business income to them.

I can't think of anything I would change about this organization. If I was closer to a field office, I would volunteer.

I donate to several environmental organizations and this organization helps complement the others work by addressing issues that others don't along with supporting other organizations in common environmental causes. Center for Biological Diversity does a great job in going after those developers and uncaring politicians who have no regard for other than the dollar.

The Center for Biological Diversity newsletter is the one I most count on for information about emerging urgent environmental threats, information always coupled with information about what specific actions the Center is taking to defend the living beings and places that cannot defend themselves.
The work of the people at the Center for Biological Diversity consistently revitalizes my faith that human beings are capable of inexhaustible dedication to values beyond their own immediate, self-centered desires.

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

Successful legislation for environmental and species protection and mobilizing volunteers to personally assist stressed animals and ecosystems.

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

Give them enormous sums of money to hire vast numbers of people to support their work and ensure the CDB's continued and expanding success.

After much disappointment in my research on other environmental organizations I almost gave up hope for the future of our planet until I found the CBD. They don't hold back and truly fight for our planet, the animals, and a greener future. Their success is astounding and I am very proud to donate my money towards an organiztion that I believe in. Keep up the amazing work CBD we appreciate all you do!

start addressing the role of the American diet in Global Warming and ecosystem destruction. Meat is not green! We need to cut back on our overconsumption of this very dirty dirty food source...more plants = a greener planet!

In my opinion, this agency is undertaking radically important work. They cover such a broad range of crucial topics related to our destruction of the environment-overpopulation, oil and gas pollution, species extinction etc. Their website is incredibly informative, keeping readers up to date on lawsuits and actions taken to stop boneheaded government decisions and to spur individuals to take action for the sake of the environment. They are very specific and the research is meticulous. A great organization and very necessary organization, in my opinion.

Feedback that they've provided as to the success of various campaigns that I've participated in.

Join it!
