Defenders of Wildlife Biodiversity Ambassadors are part of a growing grassroots community speaking up for nature. This activist network is creating an equitable space for all individuals to discover, honor and advocate for the connection between people, wildlife and environmental justice. In order to protect the planet, and our own future, we need to rise up and demand action on biodiversity loss, climate change, and all the environmental challenges we face.
- speak up for imperiled species and their habitat
- advocate for strong environmental policies that protect the health of our planet
- share their personal stories and opinions with members of Congress
- represent themselves or their community in wildlife advocacy
- engage in meaningful, action-oriented activities to stand up to corporate greed
As a Biodiversity Ambassador, you’ll participate in exclusive trainings, issue briefings and social media engagement to deepen your advocacy.
Whether you’ve never made a phone call to your elected official before or you meet regularly with your members of Congress, becoming a Biodiversity Ambassador is about finding and using your voice. Our ambassadors are placed into different activist levels based on your advocacy experience and through your actions, you’ll have opportunities to share your message with a variety of influential elected officials throughout the country. To get started as a Biodiversity Ambassador, fill out this survey and we’ll send you an email with your activist level that matches your experience level.
