Saving Life on Earth

We’re working to make the extinction crisis a key issue in the 2020 elections. Together we’ll hold our elected officials accountable for taking immediate action — and we’ll build a powerful coast-to-coast network that pushes the United States to become a leader in the global fight to save biodiversity.

Now is our chance to influence the debate and get candidates on the record committing to take action. That’s why the Center for Biological Diversity released a comprehensive plan, Saving Life on Earth, to outline policies the United States must implement to tackle this crisis.

Join our grassroots campaign to pressure candidates to support these bold stances to combat the extinction crisis and get wildlife lovers to the polls in November.
