Saving Life on Earth

Our Saving Life on Earth campaign is working to make the extinction crisis a key issue and build a powerful coast-to-coast volunteer network that pushes the United States to become a leader in the global fight to save the planet’s biodiversity.

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 today and do you part to combat the extinction crisis.


Sign the petition aimed at the 2020 candidates to get them on board with the plan for Saving Life on Earth.
