Review for Center For Biological Diversity Inc, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is one of the hardest-hitting and most effective organizations out there for protecting endangered species and habitat. Their staff is superb, and their public outreach is remarkable. I read their alerts and updates faithfully, because I know I will learn about both the science and the politics in one fell swoop.

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

They care about their members and volunteers, and they are intelligent, effective advocates, scientists, and attorneys - all in one.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptional and passionate about their work. Period.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

...quite probably save the world (or maybe a good part of the habitat and species on it!).

Ways to make it better... comment here. I've had great experiences with this organization.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

...competition for financial resources with other organizations, although I think CBD has really proved itself, and has carved a strong and growing base of supporters. I find it to be much more effective than many of the bigger, established national organizations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

...they should keep bringing in younger members, as they've been doing. That is a huge plus to their organization, compared to many others, where membership/support is centered in the 50-plus age groups...not sustainable over time.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I've worked with this organization to protect and restore fisheries in the west.
