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

Reviews for Center for Biological Diversity Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

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 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.

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 am so proud to be a member of the Center for Biological Diversity. They are here in Tucson and I have been able to volunteer at their headquarters. I have witnessed the devotion of staff members to working to protect both animals and plants that are under stress from Climate Change, habitat loss, dangerous chemicals, or other hazards. This is really important to me because so many environmental organizations specialize in one or two species. They are doing great things that will of course impact other plants and animals, but The Center is working across the entire wildlife spectrum. They use their legal skills and research talent to save so many. I am not wealthy but I give what I can and volunteer as needed to help the Center with their work. Barbara Cain
