Directory Entry : The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is a non-profit global environmental organization with more than 1.3 million members and online activists.
Also Listing:
NRDC is a leading nonprofit environmental organization that has been marshaling science and the law to protect the environment and public health since 1970. Within each of the organization’s program areas—air, water, public health, climate change, energy, public land, smart growth, international, urban, environmental justice, and nuclear non-proliferation—NRDC’s experts pursue cutting-edge litigation, sophisticated lobbying, hard-hitting scientific research, and broad-reaching public education. We employ approximately 400 scientists, lawyers, economists, media specialists, policy analysts, and administrators and maintain offices in San Francisco, Santa Monica, New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, and Beijing.  Over the past 40 years, NRDC has played a central role in crafting, implementing, enforcing, and defending virtually all of the nation’s environmental laws.
The San Francisco Litigation Team
 NRDC’s San Francisco Litigation Team supports NRDC’s organizational goals through litigation on a broad range of environmental issues (including global warming and energy, public health and environmental justice, air and water pollution, water allocation and policy, wildlife and wild places, and oceans and overfishing). Over the past several years, the Team’s work has included trials to protect threatened delta smelt and threatened and endangered salmonids from risks of extinction posed by the state and federal water projects in California; challenges to an EPA regulation that permitted intentional pesticide dosing experiments on humans and NOAA fishing regulations that fail to restore overfished species in the time required by law; lawsuits against the County of Los Angeles and City of Malibu for discharging polluted stormwater; a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Transportation for unlawfully managing hazardous waste and discharging toxic heavy metals from more than sixty obsolete and degrading ships anchored in San Francisco Bay; and a lawsuit to compel an investigation and cleanup of a landfill that has contaminated traditional drinking water sources in a rural Tennessee community with industrial solvents.
