NRDC "The Earth's Best Defense" is the nation's most effective environmental action organization. They use law, science and the support of 1.3 million members and online activists, like you and me - to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living creatures.
The Natural Resources Defense Council's purpose is to safeguard the Earth: its people, its plants and animals and the natural systems on which all life depends.
They work to restore the integrity of the elements that sustain life -- air, land and water -- and to defend endangered natural places.
They seek to establish sustainability and good stewardship of the Earth as central ethical imperatives of human society. NRDC affirms the integral place of human beings in the environment.
They strive to protect nature in ways that advance the long-term welfare of present and future generations.
They work to foster the fundamental right of all people to have a voice in decisions that affect their environment. Seeking to break down the pattern of disproportionate environmental burdens borne by people of color and others who face social or economic inequities. Ultimately, NRDC strives to help create a new way of life for humankind, one that can be sustained indefinitely without fouling or depleting the resources that support all life on Earth.
