Washington, D.C.

Defenders of Wildlife today launched a new Spanish website, which will offer translated content for Spanish-speaking audiences. Spanish is the second-most spoken language in the U.S. but second-language access to conservation work continues to be limited or unavailable.

More than 41 million citizens speak Spanish at home in the U.S. The new microsite is part of Defenders' commitment to provide more accessible content and keep more people informed of current environmental issues.

The new microsite will support Defenders' Spanish-speaking members and other audiences by providing the following:  

  • Content that clearly addresses the importance of wildlife and wild places 
  • Easy access Defenders experts, news and activities 
  • Ways to take conservation actions 

The site will also draw daily from news, blogs and other information from the main website translated by professional translators with Hands Up Communications to Spanish.  

In a growing, interconnected world, Defenders of Wildlife is proud to be sharing stories and knowledge about wildlife conservation with new audiences.
