My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Center for Biological Diversity Inc, Tucson, AZ, USA
I am a long time resident of Tucson and became aware of the Center for Biological Diversity many years ago. The Center is fabulous. In many ways it is a news service for endangered nature, with fantastic, detailed stories and updates on the species and habitats themselves and on legislative or policy developments that impact them. The webpage is a unique, rich source of information for any one interested in environmental issues. Their primary role, following and challenging activities that illegally harm wildlife or wildlands, is much needed, and they are absolutely professional and expert in this. This is also a grassroots organization in which it is obvious that every penny is used well. The people working at the Center are dedicated and work for very little pay. Clearly for them one of the major benefits is the reward of doing something useful, and they are passionate about what they are doing.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
many actions to prevent illegal development of lands.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the webpage and newsletter, which are extremely informative and which get a larger set of people involved in the issues.
Ways to make it better...
My only gripe is that I did not agree with the Center's position on mountain lions in Sabino Canyon. THe future of nature lies in education and environmental experiences especially of kids. Sabino Canyon is right next to Tucson and the primary environmental education site for many many kids. That outweighed everything else in my view. BUt this is one minor issue in the big scheme of things.
