One of the great organizations out there fighting the good fight for the environment is the NRDC.
“NRDC is the nation’s most effective environmental action organization. We use law, science and the support of 1.2 million members and online activists to protect the planet’s wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things. (See our mission statement here.)
Worth Magazine has named NRDC one of America’s 100 best charities, and the Wise Giving Alliance of the Better Business Bureau reports that NRDC meets its highest standards for accountability and use of donor funds. More expert opinions about NRDC.”
The NRDC has another site, http://www.savebiogems.org/ whose mission is “to mobilize concerned individuals in defense of exceptional and imperiled ecosystems. The initiative matches NRDC’s courtroom and advocacy expertise with the passion and determination of citizen activists. These BioGems Defenders now number more than 550,000 and have sent more than 7 million messages to corporations and government officials calling for wildland protections.”
