About the organization:
At the Center for Biological Diversity (The Center), we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature – to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species. We do so through science, law, activism and creative media.
About the program:
Our program works on environmental and reproductive health, gender and the climate crisis, food justice and industrial agriculture and human population pressure and destructive consumption and production. We fight for solutions that advance justice, equity, health, and a compassionate world where both people and wildlife can thrive.
