Fighting for the survival of polar bears. Helping wolves where they are most imperiled. Promoting new safeguards for Florida panthers and California’s sea otters. Protecting sea turtles from dangerous fishing practices. Advocating for clean energy solutions that keep wildlife out of harm’s way.
These are just a few of the ways that Defenders of Wildlife works every day to ensure that our endangered animals and wild places are around for future generations to enjoy.
For more than 65 years, Defenders of Wildlife has led the fight to save threatened and endangered species with innovative approaches that help wolves, polar bears, big cats, and other imperiled wildlife survive in an ever-changing world. It was Defenders who, back in 1995, helped bring wolves back to the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem – a landmark conservation milestone.
We are conservation advocates, scientists, lawyers, and wildlife champions standing one million strong, and we are driven by a passion for protecting wild animals and plants in their natural communities.
