As a volunteer activist working to protect southern Arizona's last remaining intact desert river ecosystem, the San Pedro watershed, I can say from my experience that CBD is more willing to take on powerful interests than many environmental groups. While some groups are perpetually seeking compromises that often benefit the god of growth at the expense of wild areas, CBD understands the importance of protecting the last remaining habitat zones and wildlife corridors. This tends not to be a popular approach for maintaining an environmental organization these days, because there is a much smaller donor base in the more remote areas. Rather than mostly doing "safe" projects that attract big corporate donors and government grants, CBD is more willing to stick their neck out.
A top-tier team of tough, smart, literate, professional, courageous, passionate visionary warriors, working effectively on multiple high-priority environmental fronts.
This is a group that seems to be aware and "on top" of issues and events as they happen, AND THEY GET INVOLVED. They are real people who can even be contacted directly, and they reply back - VERY UNUSUAL for most organizations these days. If you are interested in wildlife, this is an EXCELLENT GROUP.
Global wildlife populations remain under siege and the illegal wildlife trade flourishes. We are losing species and habitat on almost every front. That's why I support Endangered Species International (ESI) and The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), both doing an incredible job. ESI is saving so many species and habitats on the ground where CBD does not operate like in the rainforest of Congo. CBD is doing a great job by protecting the endangered species act and making sure endangered species are included and can recover!
The Center for Biological Diversity Inc covers a wide range of topics and shows awesome videos.
The Center for Biological Diversity is on it! They keep me informed about critical issues and make it easy for me to take action to change it. Additionally, it's easy to share links with Pinterest, FB and Twitter to get others involved as well. And they're also fun (Endangered Species Condoms, anyone?) and progressive. They do good work and are one of my favorites.
A wonderful non-profit organization, dedicated to the preservation, conservation, and defense of all forms of life, and our planet, as a whole. I am very proud and honored to play a significant role in the success of its campaigns, etc., especially those that bring about much-needed change in the way that man treats its precious animals. Thank you to all the amazing people at the Center for Biological Diversity, for all that you do to ensure a better tomorrow for everyone and everything without a voice.
Center for Biological Diversity seems to be one of the most effective nonprofits for environmental protection.
The Center for Biological Diversity provides me the very best information about recent activity of governments, non-profits and others who are either forwarding or retarding the health and diversity of our species. Its actions in court are important for combating irresponsible organizations in their rush to exterminate some of the most important creatures on the planet.
I feel like by taking on small actions with them, I am helping make the world a better place.
