The Center’s programs are devoted to saving life on Earth: protecting biodiversity in different arenas through science, legal action, policy advocacy, negotiation with government and industry — and creative, strategic media and outreach.
CLIMATE LAW INSTITUTE
Protect species and habitats from global warming by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution.
Protect global biodiversity where current U.S. law has the power to do so and by watchdogging U.S. actions affecting endangered species in other parts of the world.
Protect and recover all marine species and ocean habitats subject to U.S. law.
Protect endangered species and habitats on public lands.
POPULATION AND SUSTAINABILITY
Protect species and habitats by raising awareness about runaway human population growth and unsustainable consumption.
The Center’s Urban Wildlands Program focuses on private land development, water-supply projects and highway building in the “wildland-urban interface” — the edges of sprawling urban and suburban areas adjacent to wildlands.
Protect biodiversity and human health from toxic substances while promoting a deep understanding of the inextricable connection between the health of humans and all other species.
