Donate Monthly to Become a Wildlife Guardian

As a Wildlife Guardian, your monthly gift propels work on the ground, in the courts and on Capitol Hill to protect imperiled animals and the places they call home. When you join the defense by Jan. 31, a generous group of donors will match your first monthly gift up to a total of $25,000.

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.
