Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals, Biological & Life Sciences, Environment, Forest Conservation, Land Resources Conservation, Protection of Endangered Species

Mission: At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature;to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. 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.

Results: According to the LA Weekly, we're "pound for pound, dollar for dollar, the most effective conservation organization in the country."

Programs: Climate Law Institute, Endangered Species, Oceans, Public Lands, Urban Wildlands, Population and Sustainability, International, Environmental Health

This is a fabulous environmental non-profit, established by three young men in New Mexico many years ago that has burgeoned into a large (nation-wide) and very effective activist group with lawyers who advocate and sue on behalf of our crumbling environment in the age of the climate crisis. It is still directed by one of the original founders, they use donations very effectively, don't bombard with e-mails or letters (cutting down our scarce trees), but you will hear them often on the news with evidence of their work. I used to donate small amounts to many groups, now I just give a lot to this group, feeling that my money is more effective focused in their efforts. They have action alerts that you can sign up for as well as webinars on topics that they are working on related to the extinction crisis, biodiversity, food production and sustainability etc. I highly recommend this group if you want your dollars to be most effective.

I have supported CBD EVERY MONTH for several years now. Over this time, they have fearlessly and successfully defended the environment and 100's of endangered species. They are not a partisan organization. They are very wise and effective shepherds of this beautiful planet and although my income is both fixed and meager, I only wish I could help more. I take great pride in knowing that every dollar that I contribute will yield real results toward the preservation of endangered species, their habitat, our environment and our future.

Out of all the enviornmental Non-profits I follow, this one I am the most proud of supporting. The Center for Biological Diversity uses the fundemantal law of the Endangered Species Act to not just support endangered species wherever they are, but also their ecosytems.
The newsletter I recive on a regular basis from them is not about all the horrific environmental tragedies that happen every day, but rather that the Center has SUED to do something about it! They don't wait to take action, they just go ahead and DO IT. That quick action is what we need in a world where we have fallen so far behind; that is why I am proud to help the Center for Biological Diversity whenever I can, and I hope that you join me and do the same.

I have been donating to several charities in the past 30 years. I do not have a lot to spread around but feel that what I donate to each is supportive and appreciated. I have consistently found that the Center for Biological Diveristy keeps me up to date on their wins for the environment and what they are fighting for next. I read various news medias and see their name most frequently when an environmental issue is being challenged/fought for and most importantly won!

This is my favorite charity out of all the ones that I support! Their work is exceptional and effective. I was very involved in trying to save the bobcats in my town of Joshua Tree, CA., which were being trapped and killed by a local marine so their pelts could be sold to China and Russia. The Center got very involved, and mainly due to one of it's lawyers living in Joshua Tree, trapping of bobcats ceased in the entire state!
That was only one battle, but it reinforced my belief that environmentally conscious and wildlife-respecting folks like me don't have to settle for all the destruction and killing that is destroying our planet, and us.

The Center does amazing work advocating for some of the world's most vulnerable and endangered species. The staff are skilled and passionate about their work and their dedication has resulted in countless victories for the life community. I am always inspired about the news of some creature I had never heard of being recognized and protected by the Center. For example I just read about an endangered green salamander that lives along one of the gorges in the NC mountains. I am so grateful for the Center's actions to protect the precious lives of so many unique beings. The Center's research and commitment includes legislative and legal advocacy and offers interested citizens the opportunity to get involved in vital conservation and protection efforts by supporting various legislative efforts and bills in Congress. This is a first rate organization which deserves support.

I don't know of any other non-profit that does more to save endangered species and protect our planet than the Center for Biological Diversity.

If I could give six stars, I would. The Center for Biological Diversity works diligently to make the environment safer and better for animals and people. The organization supports renewable energy, understands the need to advance climate change solutions, petitions the government to pass legislation that will protect plants and wildlife, files suits against polluting companies damaging ecosystems and habitats, and fights for environmental oversight of drilling projects. Most of all it believes in science with a goal toward making the world a better place with improved air quality, cleaner oceans, and healthier conditions for all living things.

I am so proud that Center for Biological Diversity is located in Tucson where I live. Southern Arizona is one of the most biologically diverse regions of North America. Center for Biological Diversity is a conservation leader in efforts to protect the many and varied ecosystems in my home region. It's leadership on environmental issues around our beautiful country is to be commended. As a former National Park Service seasonal Ranger in Yellowstone, Crater Lake, and Mt. Rainier, I truly depend on Center for Biological Diversity to keep me updated on western conservation issues.

The Center for Biological Diversity is by far the best bet for my bucks to fight climate change and the extinction crisis. They educate and keep me informed on a broad range of causes that they are fighting for and which need my support. They partner with many environmental groups and together they fight and win legal battles that protect life on Earth.

Their efforts range across the U.S., so when I lived in Tucson, they were fighting causes I cared about there. Now that I live in the California Desert, they once again are here for me locally fighting to list the western Joshua tree as threatened under the California Endangered Species Act.

I couldn't possibly stay informed on such a broad range of environmental issues without the Center for Biological Diversity. And their success rate in winning legal battles to protect the environment is outstanding.

I've been a supporter of the Center for Biological Diversity for a couple of years. I've been pleased to see during that time that the Center was featured in the news for successful efforts to protect wildlife.

I have contributed to the Center for Biological Diversity for many years. I was first attracted to this organization when I noticed how many victories they were achieving as they worked to protect all species of living things (animals and plants). These threats might be from loss of habitat, pollution, and other causes which might extinguish them and make the species extinct. Their workload is massive but they are so effective at protecting life from extinction by using their expert legal counsel that the victories just keep rolling in. It makes me proud to support them and happy that my donations are being used so effectively to protect biological diversity in these days of threatening extinctions. Hurrah for the Center for Biological Diversity! A shining example of what can be achieved with will and determination.

Center for Biological Diversity has sued and won many important environmental issues from endangered species to protecting our National Parks from oil and gas development. One of their latest wins In September was protecting the Desert Tortoise's home by blocking livestock grazing in Mojave Desert, CBD had to appeal the original decision in favor of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
One of their latest lawsuits is suing the Biden Administration is to Protect the Denning of Polar Bear and their Cubs from oil and gas activities.

This is by far the best nonprofit organization around. They make real change by taking the important issues to court and making legal action force the change to come about. If the laws change, habitats are protected, animal rights are protected, then real change is being enforced.

Everyone who cares about wildlife, or the environment should look at this nonprofit organization. They will not be disappointed, they will become elated! To see the change this group can bring about, the voices and the issues they tackle, make you truly want to join in, get involved and be part of this positive change.

This group knows that our home needs protecting, our environment and our wildlife are an integral part of our home.

This organization is there at the front lines for all these issues. They address the issues people don't want to talk about but need to.

This nonprofit is the best one I've seen, and I've stayed with them for well over a decade now, while I've been a part of other nonprofits that I've left because they didn't do anything, take any action, make any change, other than ask for donations. This nonprofit actually does something with those donations. We see it. Court costs are ridiculous but they go anyway, they fight to bring about that change - no matter the cost. They show up everywhere they are needed. They take action and they make action. They bring positive changes to the system.

This is the kind of group all others should model themselves after. That's how good this one is.

They are hitting hard where it counts, forcing the changes that need to be made right at the source, to protect wildlife and habitat across the USA. They are not about just marching in the street with a wonderful voice, they are also in the courtrooms, onsite at destruction trying to help clean up, online informing us with videos and information, and everywhere else anyone with a passion for protecting wildlife and the environment would be.

I stumbled upon the Center about a year ago, after signing one of their petitions online. I had been growing increasingly concerned about the unprecedented corruption of our governmental institutions under the previous Presidential administration, especially with regard to the agencies who are supposed to PROTECT our wildlife and environment, not destroy it. I was happy to see that this organization was actively fighting to protect our precious lands, wildlife, and environment.

In the months that followed, I researched the Center and learned that they were doing far more to protect our planet and its living creatures, than I ever imagined. I decided to become a member and support them, and I have no regrets. They are one nonprofit that I feel I can fully trust, and they consistently get real results. Their newsletter is always a welcome sight to see, and they waste no time getting directly to the information on the newest fights they're facing, and the many frequent wins and true progress they're achieving!

I'm very careful with the nonprofits I choose to support, due to the unfortunate number of corrupt one's that exist, but I have no worries or concerns about the CFBD at all! I'm extremely happy to know that there's people like them fighting to defend our planet and its diverse living inhabitants!

Keep up the great work!

Having worked for 2 decades in international conflict resolution (primarily religiously motivated peacemaking), I then learned about the Sixth Mass Extinction Underway (see David Ulansey website by this name). I resolved to work, henceforth, to preserve the entire community of life. I reasoned that by working for peacemaking only among humans, thereby potentially enlarging the human population, it could hasten ecological collapse by way of human exploitation of the planet and the larger community of life. I also reasoned that once we embrace all of life as precious, we just might stop demonizing human groupings that are different from us---"the enemy other". That's a long lead-in to explain why I value the Center for Biological Diversity so highly. They are the state of the art in educating us about and defending the diversity of life on planet Earth. I am a very modest donor only because of my financial circumstances. It is by no means a measure of the esteem in which I hold this organization!

I am a subscriber to the Center for Biological Diversity newsletter, which I read with great interest and enthusiasm. They have good objectives, and they are willing to take on corruption and the lackeys that give no regard to the environment.

I am deeply appreciative or their opposition to those big mining interests, such as the Rosemont Mine and Rio Tinto's Oak Flat. Those corporations want to make a moonscape out of the beautiful Arizona landscapes. This is an organization that is determined to save our water resources, protect species, protect the landscape and environment, and educate the public. Whenever I get a notification to sign a petition or submit public comments, I always do so with enthusiasm and the hope that the natural world is protected. They also work in the interests of the native American Indians.

Thank you for standing up for what is right and proper!

I have been an environmentalist for over 50 years and am a member of a fairly large number of environmental organizations. I support the groups with donations and five of them are in my will, including the Center for Biological Diversity. I consider the CBD the best of all of these organizations. They are a scrappy, activist, group that fights hard for endangered species and the environment, often with positive results. They understand the importance of biodiversity and know the biology required to understand and educate about issues.
