This Earth Day, Defenders is proud to participate in this first-ever March for Science and celebrate the contribution of science to our work, our cherished wildlife and our world.
America has many worldwide firsts in conservation: we were the first nation to establish a national park, the first to create a national wildlife refuge, the first to approve a law protecting endangered species and the first to create a national day dedicated to conservation, Earth Day. But today, we are experiencing another period of crisis in America’s commitment to conservation. When did conservation become a polarizing political issue, when it has been, for the past century, a defining characteristic of American values and the American spirit?
For Defenders’ President Jamie Rappaport Clark, Earth Day is a time to reflect on how she got into wildlife conservation.
