Extinction is Forever

Extinction is forever, but endangered means we still have time.

This mantra of conservation efforts across the world is the reason we have hope for species with limited populations. We have all the tools to bring these species back before they get pushed over the edge. We just have to use them. Together we can stop extinction.

Defenders has a long history (71 years!) of protecting North America’s native and imperiled wildlife. Founded in 1947, Defenders has been focused solely on wildlife and habitat conservation and the safeguarding of biodiversity from the beginning. We believe in the inherent value of wildlife and the natural world, and we transform policies and institutions and promote innovative solutions to ensure wildlife is protected.
