Defenders  of Wildlife is dedicated to the  protection of all native 
 wild  animals and plants in their natural  communities. We focus our 
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. Long  known for our leadership 
on  endangered species issues, Defenders  of Wildlife also advocates new 
approaches to wildlife conservation  that will help keep species from 
 becoming endangered. Our  programs  encourage protection of entire 
 ecosystems and interconnected  habitats while protecting predators 
 that serve as indicator species for ecosystem health.
