A Message of Hope and Gratitude
Over the past week, the Center for Biological Diversity has made a rapid transition to life during COVID-19. We remain intently focused on our work to save wildlife.
At the same time, we're finding peace in the solitude of nature. Last weekend our staff hit the trails in Arizona, California, Colorado, Mexico and beyond. We dusted off our birdwatching binoculars and saw signs of spring in new leaves, blooms and busy insects.
It's extraordinary what can happen when we step outside our noisy, rushed lives and into the wild spaces that have been there for millennia.
These are unsettling, anxious times. It's hard not to dwell on the worry we feel for people everywhere, especially those struggling in the face of financial hardships, inadequate healthcare, and polluted air and water — a wrong the Center remains committed to seeing made right.
But there's also a rare opportunity in this moment: to slow down, take a deep breath, and recommit ourselves to each other and to the natural world.
We've launched a pledge this week to fight for the wild — we invite you to add your name.
The wins and fights described below are all made possible by supporters like you. Thank you for your love of the wild and for your faith in us.
