About Defenders of Wildlife

Founded in 1947, Defenders of Wildlife is a national leader in science-based, results-oriented wildlife conservation. We stand out in our commitment to saving imperiled wildlife and championing the Endangered Species Act, the landmark law that protects them.

Defenders is a national, nonprofit membership organization dedicated to the protection of all native animals and plants in their natural communities.
