Where We Work

Alaska remains one of the last pristine wilderness areas in the country. Defenders of Wildlife is committed to keeping it that way.
The Golden state is home to millions of wild birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles and fish that need our help.

Defenders of Wildlife's Northwest office has a reputation for being creative in its approach to conserving biodiversity and habitat. Working with many partners, we develop new conservation tools and promote cooperation among diverse interests in both the Pacific Northwest and nationally.

The variety of landscapes and habitats in the southeast – from Florida’s lagoons to North Carolina’s forests – makes for an equally awe-inspiring variety of wildlife.
Our Southwest team works to protect rare and threatened species like Mexican wolves, jaguars and ocelots.
