'Tis The Season of Giving

Over this past year, I have introduced a handful of non-profits to my readers that supports our environment. If you are looking for organizations to support this season, look into a few of my favorites.

National Audubon Society

The National Audubon Society's "mission is to protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. [They] conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds and their habitats, for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity."

Xerces Society

The Xerces Society "protects the natural world through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitats." They focus on "pollinator conservation, endangered species conservation, and reducing pesticide use and impacts." Since the Xerces Society is a science based organization all their conservation is guided by research leading to more thoughtful and overall successful conservation projects.

California Native Plant Society

CNPS works to protect native plants by working on conservation, education, and plant science. The CNPS conservation efforts includes advocating "for maximum legal protection and science-based, ecologically sound land-management." This is an important step in protecting the ecosystems that these plant reside in as well as protecting the animals that depend on these native plants for their survival.

Nature Conservancy

“The Nature Conservancy is a global environmental nonprofit working to create a world where people and nature can thrive.” Their mission is to “conserve lands and waters on which all life depends.” The nature conservancy was founded in 1951 and now “impacts conservation in 72 countries and territories.”
