Your voice is one of the most powerful assets when it comes to protecting birds and the places they live, and right now it’s as important as ever to be heard. We are coming together and building power across the nation to save birds, and we want you with us!
During the COVID-19 crisis, we will continue our webinars, office hours, and community conversations. We know that this is a stressful time, and we hope that this Flock can provide some essential comaraderie and purpose in uncertain times. We know you all have new, quickly changing realities—so join what you can, when you can. We’ll be here for you anytime.
We must join together to make a real difference for birds. Last year, Audubon released the ground-breaking climate change report Survival by Degrees that made one thing abundantly clear: We’re facing a bird emergency. The report offered a stark warning, but it also offered hope by showing that if we act today, we can help most climate threatened birds survive well into the future.
The Audubon Campaigns team is here to help you take the first steps in breaking down complex problems to run and win issue campaigns, no matter where you are starting. Join the community by signing up for the Find Your Flock email list now. We will be in touch with updates, trainings, and resources—and let you know when and how you can raise your voice to help birds.
The Audubon Campaigns team is holding monthly trainings and regular office hours throughout 2020 to help you and supporters across the nation - and the world - find your flock and work together to make the change birds and people need.
We’re facing a bird emergency, but we know that if we act today, we can help climate-vulnerable birds survive well into the future. So consider us your flock and join us. Join the Campaigns email list and we will be in touch with more ways to get involved and raise your voice to help birds.
