The Natural Resources Defense Council's purpose is to safeguard the Earth.
NRDC is the nation's most effective environmental action organization. We use law, science, and the support of more than 1 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things. Worth Magazine has named NRDC one of America's 100 best charities, and Charity Navigator has given NRDC four stars (out of a possible four).
In addition to our New York headquarters, we have three regional offices.
