I believe this sentence needs present tense.
concerned starts of a pariticiple phrase modifying the subject.
They still percieve.

I believe (E) is the best.

Another vote for E to keep things in present tense

E

They are preparing for political action which is present and so they still perceive rather then perceived or any other option.

1. "perceived as / perceive as" is correct idiom. So, "perceived to be" or "perceive being" are wrong. So "A" and "C" are out.
2. Now, "The Audubon Society and other conservation groups, concerned..." - the phrase starting with "concerned over what they..." is a Past Participle Phrase which modify "The Audubon Society and other conservation groups". So you can treat this phrase separate from the main sentence.
The main sentence (or clause) is this - "The Audubon Society and other conservation groups are preparing for a major political effort.", which is in present continuous tense.
So we need present tense at verb perceive
"perceive as" is a single idiom and the 2nd "as" at the end of the choice - B: underlined part is folly. - So consider these two reasons and make B out.

3. Out of "D" and "E" - D is wrong bcoz "serious threatening" is wrong serious is an adjective and so the correct is "threat" and not "threatening"

cheers,
Dharmin
