Review for CENTER FOR BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY INC, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The CBD puts their money where their mouth is. They defended and won the protection for countless species across the globe. They use the money we given them for EXACTLY what they claim to use it for. I'm a very happy supporter!

Review for INTERNATIONAL WOLF CENTER, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I was a member of the IWC for years but stopped donating and visiting after Minnesota wolves were removed from the endangered species list, a hunt/trapping season was put in place and the founder of IWC, Dr. David Mech, claimed to be neutral on the issue but has written articles and been quoted several times saying things that only support killing wolves and lessening the population. I received a Membership magazine from the IWC this quarter that even talked about the hunt as if it wasn't going to happen, it mentioned our DNR taking into consideration a public comment on the hunt. The article was grossly outdated because the hunt/trap was put in place long before the article was written and the DNR never took the publics comments into consideration. 80% of people surveyed by the DNR are against the hunt/trap and yet David Mech keeps making comments in favor of the DNR's decision. I gave money for years to the IWC thinking I was educating people on wolves to diminish the irrational fear people had in order to keep our gray wolf population safe so they could keep growing in numbers. Instead our state wasted countless dollars bringing back the wolf from the brink of extinction only to have them slaughtered once more. http://www.wolf.org/wolves/learn/basic/resources/mech_pdfs/311Considerations4DevelopingWolfHarvesting.pdf
