Dancing Star Foundation ("DSF") is a nonprofit public benefit corporation based in California. DSF’s mission is focused on international biodiversity conservation, global environmental education, and animal protection. The Foundation is involved in active ecological restoration efforts and intensive environmental field research – much of which is disseminated in a multitude of lectures and symposia, and all manner of publications. The Foundation works with numerous partners around the world to help raise awareness about the importance of environmental stewardship, ecological ethics and conservation biology. The Foundation focuses on the interdisciplinary humanities and social justice movements as they concern humankind's relationship to the natural world.

The Foundation is also concerned with indigenous peoples, human rights and holistic health; recognizing that healthy individuals make for a healthy planet.

The goal of Dancing Star Foundation is to help sensitize people throughout the world to the critical importance of biodiversity, animal protection and conservation; and to instill a respect for all life, which can be demonstrated by even the most modest gestures of kindness, compassion and love in our everyday lives. DSF was created by the late Sue Stiles in 1993.
