Welcome to Defenders of Wildlife. We're so happy to have you on our team. I hope you can spend a few minutes of your time with us so we can tell you a little bit about who we are.
By getting involved with Defenders of Wildlife, you'll be joining more than 1.8 million members and supporters who are passionate about conserving wildlife and their habitat.
Defenders was founded in 1947 and since then, we've fought to ensure that diverse wildlife populations in North America are secure and thriving, sustained by a network of healthy lands and waters.
Thanks to our supporters, Defenders works on the ground, in the courts, and on Capitol Hill to protect and restore wildlife across North America.
Defenders has an on the ground presence spanning from the majestic Alaskan wilderness to the vibrant Florida Everglades. We fight to protect a vast array of imperiled species from polar bears and panthers to sage-grouse and sea turtles.
We believe in the inherent value of wildlife in the natural world.
Because wildlife and wild places were here before us and they deserve to thrive alongside us.
We look forward to having you on our team.
