Advocacy websites are trying to persuade you to a certain point of view on an issue or idea. In some ways they can be helpful in providing information on a topic. However, you must remember that they are giving information from their point of view. This is known as bias (third definition). Every advocacy website will have a bias.
Here are two websites that are promoting the preservation of the environment. While their main goal is to preserve the environment, they approach the issue from different points of view. Look at each website and answer the following:
1. What is the name of the organization responsible for the website?
2. What is the primary mission of the organization? Look for "About Us" or "Our Mission"
3. Why is it important to that organization that the environment be preserved?
