Join us in 2020 to #FindYourFlock and be an advocate for birds in your community—and beyond.

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 realitiesso 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.
