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.

From the Keys and Everglades to the Panhandle’s white sand beaches, Florida is home to some of the country’s most special places and wildlife, but also some of the most imperiled. Defenders of Wildlife is dedicated to keeping the Sunshine State a wild and enchanting place.

With large swaths of undeveloped land and some of America’s biggest native animals, the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains provide the last best wildlife habitat in the lower 48 for many species.
Our Southwest team works to protect rare and threatened species like Mexican wolves, jaguars and ocelots.
