Annual Report 2012
2012 was a record-breaking year for the Center in protecting endangered species. We won positive Endangered Species Act decisions for 104 animals and plants, as well as final protection for 33 species, including two Arctic ice seals, Puerto Rico’s coquí llanero tree frog, eight southeastern mussels, 23 Hawaiian plants and insects and a San Francisco manzanita once believed to have vanished forever from the wild. We also secured 40 million acres of protected habitat for wildlife — an area larger than Pennsylvania. In our fight against climate change, we stopped sprawling developments in California and spurred more than 40 cities to join our national campaign demanding action on the climate crisis. Finally, we launched new initiatives to save the oceans from pollution and acidification, distributed 150,000 free Endangered Species Condoms and engaged our online supporters in taking more than 1.5 million actions on behalf of wildlife and our planet.
