About Us

Why do we exist?

The Endangered Species Coalition’s mission is to stop the human-caused extinction of our nation’s at-risk species, to protect and restore their habitats, and to guide these fragile populations along the road to recovery. 

What do we do?

We work to safeguard and strengthen the Endangered Species Act, a law that enables every citizen to act on behalf of threatened and endangered wildlife – animals, fish, plants, and insects – and the wild places they call home.

How do we reach our goals?

We use grassroots mobilization, education, and targeted campaigns to enable every American to participate in actions that impact the democratic political process. Do you want to join us?

Who are we?

We are a national network of conservation, scientific, education, religious, sporting, outdoor recreation, business and community organizations – and more than 100,000 individual activists and supporters – all dedicated to protecting our nation’s disappearing wildlife and last remaining wild places.
