Dr. Miriam Galindo is a licensed clinical psychologist and social worker based in Irvine, California, where she shares a private practice with her husband, Jorge Galindo, MFT. A specialist in providing counseling during high-conflict divorce cases, Dr. Miriam Galindo is a member of the National Wildlife Federation outside of her work.

The National Wildlife Federation is a national non-profit organization founded for the purpose of nature conservation, as well as educating and advocating their causes. The National Wildlife Federation is a long-established organization over 75 years old and stands today one of the most prolific conservationist groups in the United States.

As a national non-profit, the National Wildlife Federation has a lot of territory to cover, and many species to protect. One way in which the organization combats this issue is its Adoption Center. This program invites volunteers to symbolically adopt a particular species of animal about which they are passionate and give funds specifically for conservation efforts on behalf of that animal. As the donation is also accompanied by a stuffed animal of chosen species, the Adoption Center is popular with younger conservation enthusiasts and also serves as a way to get younger generations interested in the cause.
