We need to have a voice as to what happens to our oceans.
Global warming is killing polar bears. As their sea-ice habitat disappears, bears are drowning, starving to death, and in some desperate cases, even eating each other.
It doesn't have to be this way. With your help, the Center for Biological Diversity can educate and inspire 100 million people to take action to save polar bears.
In 2010 the Center won the Top Ten Award for our polar bear public service television ad, reaching a record 90 million people. This year we have a powerful new ad, and we need your help to inform 100 million people about the polar bear's plight.
Help us get the message out while polar bears still have a chance. We've been top-rated by the American Institute of Philanthropy, and you can trust us to make the most of your tax-deductible donation. Please call toll-free (866) 357-3349 x323.

"Guarda Bosques" (Forest Keepers) 45 min.
On April 15th 2011, when organized crime thugs teamed up with the logging industry and different government agencies to pillage precious and sacred forests at gun-point, the indigenous Purepecha community of Cheran, Michoacan, Mexico rose up with sticks, rocks, and bottle rockets against what can only be described as their local narco-government. Since then, they have taken the authorities offices, weapons, and pick-up trucks, ousted all political parties and all local and state police, and have re-established a traditional form of self-governance that includes its own council of elders, a community "police", known as a "ronda", and its own forest defense team, or forest keepers, known as the "Guarda Bosques."
El 15 de abril de 2011, después de que los matones del crimen organizado se habían unido con la industria maderera y distintas agencias del gobierno para saquear los bosques preciosos y sagrados con la fuerza de las armas, la comunidad indígena Purépecha de Cherán, Michoacán, México, se levantó con palos, piedras y cohetones contra lo que sólo se puede describir como su narco-gobierno. Desde entonces, han tomado control de las oficinas de las autoridades, sus armas y sus camionetas para luego echar fuera a todos los partidos políticos y todos los policías locales y estatales. Han re-establecido una forma de auto-gobernación tradicional que incluye su consejo de ancianos, su "policía" comunitaria, conocida como "la ronda," y su propio equipo para la defensa de los bosques, conocido como los "Guardabosques."
An Appeal:How to Help
Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered and without urgent action could be the first Great Ape species to become extinct.
SOS is dedicated to turning this situation around. We do this by:
Raising awareness about the importance of protecting orangutans and their rainforest home; Supporting grassroots projects which empower local people to become guardians of the rainforests;
Restoring damaged orangutan habitat through tree planting programmes; and campaigning on issues threatening the survival of orangutans in the wild.
Help us protect orangutans, their forests and their future.
SOS was established in 1997 by the late Lucy Wisdom.

Short listed for the Prix Pictet, The global award in photography and sustainability.
Bernie Krause has been recording wild soundscapes -- the wind in the trees, the chirping of birds, the subtle sounds of insect larvae -- for 45 years. In that time, he has seen many environments radically altered by humans, sometimes even by practices thought to be environmentally safe. A surprising look at what we can learn through nature's symphonies, from the grunting of a sea anemone to the sad calls of a beaver in mourning.
