Defenders of Wildlife is dedicated to the protection of all native wild animals and plants in their natural communities. It focuses its programs on what scientists consider two of the most serious environmental threats to the planet: the accelerating rate of extinction of species and the associated loss of biological diversity, and habitat alteration and destruction. Defenders of Wildlife also advocates new approaches to wildlife conservation that will help keep species from becoming endangered. Its programs encourage protection of entire ecosystems and interconnected habitats while protecting predators that serve as indicator species for ecosystem health. It's sister organization, Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, lobbies and works to influence legislative action. [1]
