EARTH DAY 2017
There’s never been a better Earth Day to speak up for the wild. This year — thanks to a group of amazing volunteers — the Center for Biological Diversity will be tabling at more than 100 Earth Day events in all 50 states. We’ll have petitions to sign, advice on actions to take and pre-stamped postcards you can send to your member of Congress urging protection for endangered species, our climate and public lands.
On the first Earth Day since the election of Donald Trump, take a moment to make your voice heard.
The Center for Biological Diversity works through science, law and creative media to secure a future for all species, great or small, hovering on the brink of extinction. Learn more about the Center for Biological Diversity.
Hear the call of the wild? You're not alone. Our endangered species ringtones have been downloaded about 700,000 times in nearly 180 countries.

Young people can make a difference too. Check out our Generation Wild website with tips on being a young conservationist, tools for taking action and a lot of fun stuff to read, do and see.
TRUMP ACTION TOOLKIT: Ready to Fight Trump? Start here.
With President Trump in the White House, people power is more important than ever. The Center launched this Trump Action Toolkit — start by signing our pledge of resistance. The fight is on.
Embattled Borderlands: Story Map
The Center has joined with the Borderlands Project, the International League of Conservation Photographers and others in launching a story-map project that combines stunning photography with cutting-edge mapping and research to tell the story of the border wall and its harm.
Public Lands Enemies
This Center report analyzes 132 bills part of a concerted effort by 15 U.S. senators and representatives, backed by extractive industries, to privatize our public lands — putting at risk hundreds of thousands of acres held in the public trust and home to diverse native wildlife.
Restoring the Gray Wolf
The Center is fighting hard to help all U.S. gray wolves get back the protections they need to recover in habitat across the country. Losing safeguards brings progress to a grinding halt.
Op-eds and Cool New Features on Medium
Check out our latest hard-hitting opinion pieces, our environmental health advice column, plus a fun series coming out biweekly, Flotsam: #ecolists of the things we love.
Protect Sacred Oak Flat
Arizona's Oak Flat — a stunning area sacred to Western Apache tribes (and an important part of America’s public-land heritage) — is in danger of destruction by a massive copper mine. Learn more about the land, the threats and the resistance.
Nuestro Trabajo en México
Mexico hosts a stunning array of species, but too many are imperiled. The Center just opened an office in La Paz to help save sea turtles, vaquitas and other wildlife in trouble. Read about our Mexico work en español or in English.
Politics of Extinction
Despite its success, the Endangered Species Act is under attack like never before. Congressional Republicans have launched a barrage of legislative assaults on endangered species in recent years, seeking to block, remove or weaken their protections. Read our report.
