My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Center for Biological Diversity Inc, Tucson, AZ, USA
I've been a supporter and member of this organization for a long time. Twice, a friend of mine and I have volunteered to participate in a CBD presentation at the Natural History Museum in San Diego. Both nights the museum was hosting a night for "Adultologists" . These festive occasions attracted large groups of people to the museum, who, as they were passing us , saw our colorful boxes with different pictures of endangered species on them that were displayed on our table. We were able to disseminate a lot of information to people regarding environmental concerns and even gave tests to people to help them to determine individual carbon footprints. The purpose of the colorful boxes with rhymes on them and condoms inside was to remind people of the reality of human over-population of the earth, and their individual responsibility in that problem. The explanation showing the size of the carbon footprint of each child born, especially in a first world country, is a very straight forward way of pointing out an important factor in the extinction of endangered species; over-population, which results in destruction of habitat, food and water, and breeding partners. Many, many people came by to talk, read, and listen to the messages from CBD. Every response both nights was positive and a lot of the participants thanked the volunteers for their work there. I would gladly volunteer again to support the Center for Biological Diversity so that the organization, its work and accomplishments are more widely known.
