Take conservation actions in your own community.
There are scores of other actions you can take in your daily life around the house, in your neighborhood, and community, to help biodiversity and lessen your impact on the earth. Consulting the following web sources can provide you with a wealth of options to consider.
The internet has also made it extraordinarily easy for each citizen to be rapidly alerted by advocacy organizations through periodic emails on actions that can be taken to protect the environment, whether as a concerned parent, voter, taxpayer, ratepayer, shareholder, or consumer. These alerts typically have a prepared letter that will automatically be faxed or emailed to federal legislators, government agencies, or corporate leaders or laggards, when you simply click the email's reply button.

Signing up for these alerts offers one of the fastest, easiest, but highly effective ways to engage in citizen advocacy on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Many folks now make it a habit to start each day with an Internet-activated action on some issue of global, national, state or local importance (whether supporting the expansion of community bicycle paths, increasing national vehicle fuel economy standards, expanding funding for voluntary family planning services, or supporting multi-national funding for marine protected areas).

As Margaret Mead said, "Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed citizens to change the world. Indeed, it has never been done otherwise."
