Defenders of Wildlife
A leading innovator in the conservation world for more than 65 years, Defenders of Wildlife works to preserve imperiled wildlife and wild lands with funds raised through symbolic animal adoptions. Proceeds from its programs are immediately put to use where they are needed most, garnering the organization recognition from Reader's Digest and Worth magazine. More than 95% of Defenders of Wildlife’s 2012 funds received went directly to wildlife-conservation programs and support services such as fighting climate change through research and policy work, advocating drilling bans, and pushing for polar bears to gain the full protection under the Endangered Species Act. Each donation works to further conservation efforts both on the ground and by state agencies to ensure better water quality for polar bears and other wildlife.
