[ Defenders of Wildlife ]

Defenders of Wildlife is dedicated to the protection of all native animals and plants in their natural communities.

 

Founded in 1947, Defenders of Wildlife is a major national conservation organization focused solely on wildlife and habitat conservation and the safeguarding of biodiversity. They believe in the inherent value of wildlife and the natural world, and this singular focus defines their important niche in the environmental and conservation community and serves as the anchor for our organizational values.

 

Defenders’ approach is direct and straightforward – They protect and restore imperiled species throughout North America by transforming policies and institutions and promoting innovative solutions – and this approach makes a lasting difference for wildlife and its habitat:

 

  • On the ground at the state and local level, developing practical, innovative programs that protect and restore key species and habitats and inform our national policy work.

 

  • With state, national and international policy makers to secure laws and policies that protect animals and their habitats. They are widely recognized by their peers and policymakers for the effectiveness of our advocacy work, particularly with the Department of the Interior and Department of Agriculture and are known for being the most effective advocate for wildlife funding in the federal appropriations process.

 

  • In the courts establishing legal safeguards for native wildlife and fighting efforts to roll back environmental protections. They act as legal counsel on behalf of a population segment that cannot act for itself, North America’s wildlife.
