Here's what people are saying about us:

"One of the nation's most powerful environmental groups."

-The New York Times

"NRDC's lawyers are said by eco-observers to know more about environmental law than the government does."

– U.S. News & World Report

"NRDC is, by many accounts, the most effective lobbying and litigating group on environmental issues."

– The Wall Street Journal
Quote by Robert Redford, NRDC Trustee

"Thirty-five years ago I decided to consolidate my energies behind the one environmental group with the most power: NRDC. They had the power to sue — the power to go to court against the corporate goliaths. I've felt that way ever since and I feel that way even more so today."

– Robert Redford, NRDC Trustee
Quote by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., NRDC Senior Attorney

"With our staff of 380 attorneys, scientists and specialists, NRDC is respected around the world, by friend and foe, as America's toughest environmental advocate."
