Center for Biological Diversity - Climate Law Institute
The Center for Biological Diversity's Climate Law Institute wages legal and public campaigns to limit climate change and its impacts. The Institute brings a climate focus to all of the Center's program areas - including Endangered Species, Public Lands, Oceans, Urban Wildlands, and International - to unite their campaigns in a coordinated strategy to protect species and ecosystems from the effects of climate change.
The Institute develops legal and public-pressure campaigns to limit global warming pollution and prevent it from driving species extinct. The Institute instigates suits to ensure enforcement of important federal legislation, such as the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. Among its mitigation activities, the Institute aims to change the dominant public-lands management regime from resource extraction to global warming adaptation, including sustaining wildlife populations, providing clean water, sequestering carbon, and increasing the extent of public lands.
Critical habitat petitions and Endangered Species Act listing petitions are available on their site.
