Forests Forever was founded in 1989 during the historic campaign to save Headwaters ancient redwood forest in Humboldt County, California. Ten years later 7500 acres including several large virgin groves had been acquired as Headwaters Forest Reserve and can be visited today. Our efforts helped galvanize the broad-based public awareness and outcry that led to this and many other subsequent forest victories across the state.
At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature — to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.
Across more than 20 million acres, three states, and two national parks, the Greater Yellowstone Coalition works to defend the wild heart of North America.
We believe that when the heart is engaged, the mind and body will follow. That is why, since our founding in 1939, Nature Canada has been connecting Canadians to nature, trying to instil in them a nature ethic – a respect for nature, an appreciation for its wonders, and the will to act in nature’s defense.
