It’s never been more urgent than right now to defend endangered species. Global Good is dedicated to the protection and restoration of all native animals and plants in their natural habitats in North America. Our vision is shaped by scientific, legal, and advocacy expertise. With your support, we can continue to defend imperiled species and make an impact for Global Good.

Sea Turtles.

There are seven species of sea turtles that inhabit the Earth’s oceans: loggerhead, leatherback, green turtle, hawksbill, Kemp’s ridley, olive ridley, and flatback. Except for the flatback, all species occur in North American waters and are listed as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act. The southeastern United States provides a globally significant habitat for sea turtles. In fact, Florida beaches host 90% of sea turtle nesting in the continental U.S. and the largest rookery of loggerhead nesting in the world.

Polar Bear.

These great white bears are an icon of the Arctic. There are images circulating on the internet of starving polar bears struggling to stand, let alone hunt and contend with the elements. Habitat loss, human disturbance, and climate change are combining to overwhelm polar bears. Alaska’s Arctic is rapidly overheating, experiencing the effects of climate change at twice the rate of the rest of the world. The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge’s coastal plain is the most important land habitat for denning polar bears and that is precisely where devastating drilling for oil and gas is proposed to take place.


The elephant is a highly social, intelligent, and ecologically-important animal. Tragically, because of the illegal trade of their ivory, elephants have also emerged as a symbol of international wildlife trafficking. Elephants live in tight-knit matrilineal family groups led by a matriarch who is often the eldest female. In their habitats, elephants play the role of keystone species and ecosystem engineers because they reshape the environment, uprooting vegetation while they forage and creating new waterholes as they dig for water.

Grizzly bears.

Grizzly bears were once numerous, ranging across North America from California to the Great Plains, and from Mexico all the way up into Alaska. As with many species, westward expansion, human transformation of the landscape, and fear led to the near-eradication of grizzly bears in the continental United States. When the grizzly bear was listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) in 1975, the grizzly bear population in the lower 48 states was down to less than 1,000 bears.


Pollinators are animals such as bees, butterflies, bats, and birds that carry pollen from flower to flower, fertilizing both wild and cultivated plants to produce seeds and fruit. They are essential to maintaining ecosystems across the nation and around the world. Pollination sustains plants that provide food and shelter for people and wildlife, medicines for people and animals, and diverse and healthy landscapes, from forests to deserts. About one in three bites of food we eat depends on pollinators. Unfortunately, too many native pollinator populations are in serious decline.

Bald Eagle.

The bald eagle is our national symbol and unique to North America. Under the Endangered Species Act, the bald eagle’s recovery was made possible through captive-breeding programs, reintroduction efforts, vigorous law enforcement, and habitat protection—including the designation of national wildlife refuges and the protection of nest sites during the breeding season. The recovery of the bald eagle shows that when we work together, we can make conservation miracles happen.


Southern resident orcas are a unique population of orcas in the Pacific Northwest. Large dams, like those on the Snake River, and the destruction of salmon habitat have caused salmon stocks throughout the Northwest to either plummet or vanish, leaving orcas with less and less to eat. Today, these orcas are slowly starving to death and in danger of extinction.
