CSEF works worldwide to save threatened species from extinction, protect habitat and open space, and improve ecological health through collaborative projects with scientists, educators and environmental organization partnerships. We focus our work on human-modified landscapes and seascapes where biodiversity is at risk because of habitat loss, disrupted ecosystems, and other environmental changes caused by humans.
The Common Sense Environmental Fund is a global wildlife conservation organization based in Washington, DC. We are working to achieve a world where wildlife conservation is a priority and trained conservation professionals in every country are engaged in ensuring species survival. We work to accomplish this through cooperative relationships with a myriad of international partners. Our experienced team conducts the necessary research and analysis to determine which environmental charities have the most effective strategies to address our planet's needs. We examine their mission, values, ethical principals, management, budget, overhead, access to revenue and percentage of funds allocated to projects. We only invest in organizations that demonstrate the highest levels of value and integrity and spend 80% (at a minimum) of their revenue directly on biodiversity, forest, international, sustainable agriculture, wetlands and water/marine research, conservation and restoration projects. The Common Sense Environmental Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Volunteers, in any part of the country, are greatly needed to assist in the implementation of a cell phone recycling/fundraising program. Email for more information.
