The Center for Biological Diversity is one of only a handful of non-profit organizations I choose to donate to because of their stellar work. Often in the news this group is mentioned as championing important animal and environment causes, often impacting changes in legislation. Thank you for being on the front lines of crucial causes that may otherwise not be addressed and followed through in changes to protect our varied and inter-connected web of life on planet earth"

This organization doesn't just protest bad things the government does. It takes the government to court for their illegal actions. They are the BEST!!!

They help protect us all from the environmental threats than come from the government and corporations. They cover (successfully) a huge array of issues.

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

increase the number of people that do volunteer work with them.

I am very impressed by what they accomplish in the courts. If they didn't exist, the government & big businesses would destroy everything. They are a vital check to all who have the power to take and/or destroy our environment.

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

their stick-to-it-ism. They will face down huge organizations with a small but very committed crew.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

I love the Center for Biological Diversity because they are aggressive in defending the animals and our environment. When they go to court, they win most of the time. When they don't, they keep fighting. Whenever I get down about all the destruction caused by human greed and ignorance, I remember the Center is always on the job, battling the evil forces.

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.

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

wish they could have unlimited funds for their work. They are awesome!

This environmental organization is one of the courageous few that recognizes the most important driver of global depletion leading to climate change, water shortages and species extinction which is animal agriculture and human population density. They educate, litigate, lead protests, and organize to help foster the needed changes to save life on our planet.

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

provide more money to them.

The Center for Biological Diversity deserves great credit for encouraging their members to reduce their consumption of animal products. Animal agriculture is responsible for significant deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions that are devastating the Earth's environment and driving a dangerous global warming. Adopting a vegan diet is a win, win, win for the environment, human health, and of course all the billions of animals killed cruelly every year in factory farms.

While the Center for Biological Diversity support some of the more popular species protection, they are also involved in the protection of many species that may not garner interest from other environmental charities, who often only support high-visibility causes. They are hard-working and communicate well with members. As an avid environmentalist, I rate them as one of my top 5 charities and always feel good about my donations to them. They give me some hope in the future of our wildlife.

I rely on the Center for Biological Diversity for accurate information on issues affecting the natural world and what role I may play in helping effect good outcomes. The Center appears to be a lean, green machine in confronting threats to environmental integrity. It has been a champion in the ongoing struggle to restore endangered species status for wolves while also striving to protect threatened birds, reptiles, invertebrates, and plants whose predicaments I usually haven't heard of from other environmental organizations. I feel the Center has earned my wholehearted support.
