The Center for Biological Diversity believes 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, they work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. They 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. -- Center for Biological Diversity

Covering over 70% of our planet, the ocean sustains and protects life in innumerable ways.  We are in danger of losing what makes the ocean such an important and special place to us.  A range of climate impacts—including sea level rise, ocean acidification, and stronger, more frequent hurricanes—are damaging coastal industries and communities.  Ocean Conservancy envisions a healthy future for our ocean and the communities that rely on it, free from greenhouse gas pollution and resilient to climate impacts, and they work to create sustainable ocean-based climate solutions. 

Together, we create science-based solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it. -- Ocean Conservancy

Birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals that pollinate plants are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food. They sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce.  Pollinators are increasingly suffering from loss of habitat, chemical misuse, introduced and invasive plant and animal species, and diseases and parasites.  Pollinator Partnership’s mission is to promote the health of pollinators, critical to food and ecosystems, through conservation, education, and research.

Without the actions of pollinators agricultural economies, our food supply, and surrounding landscapes would collapse. -- Pollinator Partnership
