COVID-19 has ground the world to a halt. If you’re feeling cooped up and restless, Defenders has some suggestions to keep you wild while you’re staying home.

Up to a million species are facing extinction – some within the next decade – unless we take immediate action to save them. You can be a part of the solution for endangered species: support efforts to support the wild right now!

Our Strategy

Defenders of Wildlife works on the ground, in the courts, and on Capitol Hill to protect and restore imperiled wildlife and habitats across North America. Together, we can ensure a future for the wildlife and wild places we all love.
