Most of the largest environmental groups in the nation saw their donations spike after President Donald Trump entered the White House, Axios reports.

Axios compared tax filings from 10 of the country's top environmental groups from 2015 to ones from 2017 and found that all raised more money in the year after Trump's election. Oceana saw the biggest jump in terms of percentage, going from $20 million in 2015 to $50 million in 2017, while Nature Conservancy saw the largest change in amount, raising almost $200 million more in 2017 than in 2015.

A look at the findings:

  • Oceana: $20 million in 2015, $50 million in 2017
  • League of Conservation Voters: $22 million in 2015, $33 million in 2017
  • Earthjustice: $50 million in 2015, $76 million in 2017
  • 350.org: $14 million in 2015, $19 million in 2017
  • Natural Resources Defense Council: $135 million in 2015, $178 million in 2017
  • Sierra Club: $100 million in 2015, $130 million in 2017
  • Defenders of Wildlife: $30 million in 2015, $38 million in 2017
  • Environmental Defense Fund: $165 million in 2015, $210 million in 2017
  • Nature Conservancy: $770 million in 2015, $955 million in 2017
  • Union of Concerned Scientists: $31 million in 2015, $38 million in 2017

"Americans see the damage the Trump administration is doing to our environment and know that we are nearing a point of no return on climate," Sam Sankar, Earthjustice senior vice president of programs, told Axios.
