I have been a fan and member of the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) for many years now. They absolutely put their money where their mouth is, by keeping members current on all the latest environmental destruction and preservation news in the USA and beyond, going into legal battle to stop governement and corporate devastation to wildlife and wild lands, and motivating with successful drives to get us all involved as active citizens to email, call, or gather for the sake of biological diversity preservation. I'm especially impressed by them being one of the few organizations to seriously address overpopulation, which is by far the number one reason we are experiencing rapid climate change, running out of natural resources, and sending species to extinction. There's just far too many of us and finite space. My only concern is that CBD has supported the construction of industrial sized solar and wind power grids in the western deserts, which have very delicate, rare ecosystems that are being severely compromised by these developments. We should be promoting solar and wind in cities, on warehouse rooftops, vacant lots, and anywhere else that is already degraded--but not pristine desert lands. Other than that, their record is fantastic on conservation of our species and wild places.
