Natural Resources Defense Council
The Natural Resources Defense Council`s purpose is to safeguard the Earth: its people, its plants and animals and the natural systems on which all life depends. It works to restore the integrity of the elements that sustain life -- air, land and water -- and to defend endangered natural places. It seeks to establish sustainability and good stewardship of the Earth as central ethical imperatives of human society. NRDC affirms the integral place of human beings in the environment.
