EDF wages battle on behalf of the planet against powers that individuals like me cannot face. I am grateful for EDF, and for its approach to environmental activism: scientific, legally defensible, and tenacious. EDF's ability to work with the "opposition" to deliver a win-win solution is impressive.

The Environmental Defense Fund is one of the two best advocates for the environment. The other is the Sierra Club. The EDF works tirelessly to identify problems, devise solutions and make the public aware of what is happening to our environment. I personally believe that we should be stewards of the Earth and EDF fits perfectly with my philosophy.

People who want to live a long healthy life will support EDF because their ultimate goal is to solve the world's serious environmental problems....climate change, toxic ocean water and agricultural growth, are at the top of the list . What's important is that EDF coordinates with the government and various businesses to analyze and find the best scientific, environmental, and economical solutions that our planet is facing. Every US state and country should coordinate with EDF to find out the latest discoveries and changes, provide information, and contribute monetarily. I think of EDF as a non-spiritual God.

It's killing everything we need to keep our world healthy.To the world out there it is now time to act. If you sit back and wait to see what the future brings that will be one big mistake. Wake up have a coffee then call out. Reach out to those who are in charge of our country. Tell them they have to protect our oceans, rivers and streams. They need to act quickly to save us from disaster. Reduce carbon emissions and noxious fumes from escaping into our air destroying our ozone. Stop spraying our land with chemicals. Wake up people wake up

EDF is a passionate nonprofit that continually keeps me informed on important environmental news. They make it really easy to not only stay informed, but to also take action. Their recommended letters to senators and members of congress are a great way to voice your opinion. I know that my one letter doesn't matter, but if enough of us send them it makes an impression. Strength in numbers! I highly recommend joining EDF in their fight to make our planet better.

If it wasn't for your web-site like others, most people in the World probably wouldn't really know how much Mother-Nature changes? The creatures of the Earth really need help from the acknowledgement that we all do really Care! Thanks for listening,......
