Headquarters Tucson, AZ, USA
Mission The Center combines scientific research with assertive policy advocacy, community organizing and environmental law to achieve strategic protections for endangered species and fragile ecosystems. The Center was founded in 1989 to protect the old growth forests of the Southwest, and its signature species, the Mexican spotted owl. Since then, we have achieved hundreds of victories from Alaska to Texas, protecting 329 species and 38 million acres. The Center uses these protections to promote significant change in destructive industry and land management practices. We are dedicated to stopping the extinction crisis, restoring degraded ecosystems, and protecting the diversity that sustains us.
