“Global warming is the single biggest threat to our wildlife and wild places and this economic downturn continues to threaten communities across our country. We know that by confronting these problems simultaneously, we can create good jobs, lead the world in the production of cleaner, renewable energy, and protect the environment for the next generation of Americans."
As America's largest conservation organization, the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) works with more than 4 million members, partners and supporters in communities across the country to inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children's future.
In the lifetime of a child born today, 20-30 percent of the world's plant and animal species will be on the brink of extinction because of global warming. As America's conservation organization, the National Wildlife Federation is leading the way in bringing attention to the impacts of global warming on our natural world.
NWF advocates for national and international policy and legislation that will cut carbon pollution, safeguard wildlife and their habitats from the impacts of global warming, and working to broaden the climate movement by engaging and empowering people and communities around global warming solutions that reduce pollution and jump-start investments in a clean energy economy.
NWF joined the BlueGreen Alliance in September 2010 to promote a 21st century economy where safeguarding the environment and our wildlife are a central goal in advancing clean energy solutions.
