Biden's American Jobs Plan

“We look forward to an infrastructure plan that creates jobs, addresses the climate crisis and ensures the protection of wildlife in the nation’s lands, waters and skies." - Jamie Rappaport Clark, president and CEO, Defenders of Wildlife

Make a Difference for Wildlife

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 protect 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.
