Best Wildlife Charities

These organizations ensure the propagation of a truly wild wilderness.

from Reader's Digest Magazine | May 2005

Do you love animals — even the kind with big, sharp, scary teeth? Do you cherish the idea of an America where the buffalo roam — accompanied by wolves, coyotes and mountain lions? Then here’s the charity for you. The Defenders of Wildlife has several programs to protect and preserve all animals (and even plants) in their natural environments. They also advocate the Endangered Species Act of 1973 and work to save animals on the brink of extinction, among other things, by preventing the alteration or destruction of their natural habitats. More concerned about creatures that swim, flip and dive? Then consider EcoHealth Alliance. Its Edge of the Sea program focuses on the survival and recovery of sea creatures such as manatees, sea turtles, and whales.
