Join the movement: Save life on Earth

Note from the CREDO Mobile team: This December, the Center for Biological Diversity is among three amazing groups that will receive a share of our monthly grant. Funding from the CREDO Mobile community will help the Center for Biological Diversity in its mission to secure a future for all species hovering on the brink of extinction and preserve a world where the wild is still alive.

There has never been a time in human history when so many animals and plants were disappearing so rapidly from our planet. In October, 21 species of animals were declared extinct in the U.S. All of these wild beings had a beating heart and now it has been confirmed they’re gone forever.

Left unchecked, the wildlife extinction crisis could steal a million more species in the coming decades. It’s gut-wrenching to ponder a world without bears, wolves, butterflies, sea turtles, birds, frogs, trees, flowers and many other irreplaceable animals and plants.

The Center for Biological Diversity works on the front lines of this deadly crisis, leading innovative and uncompromising campaigns aimed directly at ensuring every species gets a shot at survival. We take an unrelenting approach that combines science, groundbreaking legal work and on-the-ground organizing to advocate for every species that is facing extinction – no matter the size, no matter the place.

Over the past three decades, the Center has secured protection for more than 750 animals and plants in the United States and around the globe. Our work has also helped preserve more than half a billion acres of wildlife habitat, including rivers, forests, deserts, mountains and oceans.

Will you join this fight to save the wild?

We’re proud to raise our voice to preserve species, save our climate and fight for a safer future for all life on Earth.

And we’re compelled, because there isn’t a moment to lose in confronting the biodiversity crisis. We lose one species every hour. Scientists tell us 41% of amphibians, 27% of mammals, 36% of corals and 13% of birds are today threatened with extinction.

We’ve already suffered heartbreaking losses, including colorful Carolina parakeets that once lived in the Midwest, sea minks that swam off the coast of Maine and, most recently, eight unique honeycreeper birds that lived only in Hawai’i.

Right now, there are fewer than 15 red wolves in the wild in the eastern U.S. Meanwhile, North Atlantic right whales have dwindled to fewer than 350 and, just south of California, the population of the world’s smallest porpoise is fewer than 10.

These animals, and hundreds more, desperately need help – and fast. Extinction is forever, so it’s critical we get this right.

With your help, we can save species from extinction

The good news is that the Center’s unrelenting approach has been paying off. Time and again, we’ve gone toe to toe with polluters, politicians and greedy corporate profiteers. More than 90% of our legal cases end in favor of the wild. Our work has tangible, on-the-ground results, including forests protected from chainsaws, deserts spared from bulldozers and clean air protected from pollution.

But we need you with us. By joining our movement, you can help the Center:

Our hard-hitting campaigns combine litigation and activism to protect biodiversity hotspots. Right now, in the U.S. alone, we’re defending Georgia’s primordial swamps in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, longleaf pine forests in North Carolina and old-growth forests in Southern California’s Los Padres National Forest. And we’re advancing fierce litigation and powerful media campaigns to end all offshore drilling in California, the Arctic and the Gulf of Mexico. Our coral reefs, ice seals, coastal birds, sea turtles and whales must be protected from inevitable oil spills.

This is the work we’re called to do

Every day, we’re reminded of the urgency of this moment, as wild plants and animals vanish before our eyes. Right now, we’re mourning the loss of 21 species. Their names are known to us: Kauaʻi ʻōʻō, Bachman’s warbler, Little Mariana fruit bat, green-blossom pearly mussel. And we won’t forget them.

The extinction crisis isn’t inevitable. It’s a moral and political choice. Every day we can choose to save life on Earth – but it can only happen with the help of people like you.
