We are honored to work in support of NRDC (the Natural Resources Defense Council), one of the nation's most effective environmental action groups.

For more than four decades, NRDC has fought successfully to defend wilderness and wildlife and to protect clean air, clean water and a healthy environment.

NRDC uses law, science and the support of 1.4 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places, and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things.

Their mission is to safeguard the earth: its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. By fighting in court, working through Congress, and mobilizing millions of people worldwide, NRDC has stopped powerful corporate interests from destroying our clean air and water, public lands and wildlife habitats. The NRDC BioGems campaign empowers citizens to take effective online action in defense of our planet's most endangered wild places.

Worth Magazine has named NRDC one of America's 100 best charities, and Charity Navigator has given NRDC four stars-its top rating.

NRDC launched the BioGems Initiative
in 2001 to mobilize concerned individuals
in defense of exceptional and imperiled
ecosystems. The initiative matches NRDC's
courtroom and advocacy expertise with the
passion and determination of citizen
activists. These BioGems Defenders now number
more than 800,000 and have sent more than
15 million messages to corporations and
government officials calling for wildland
and wildlife protection. Together, we have
achieved stunning successes.
