Our Work

The National Audubon Society protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow, throughout the Americas using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation.

Our Work Across the Hemisphere

A hemispheric approach to bird conservation directs our work to the places where birds need us the most. It recognizes that the majority of bird species in the Americas migrate annually between Canada, the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Audubon’s programs will be like the birds—unencumbered by political boundaries and seamlessly integrated across the Western Hemisphere.

Habitat Conservation

Habitat loss, exacerbated by climate change, is driving bird declines across the hemisphere. Fueled by the unmatched science of the Migratory Bird Initiative, and in collaboration with local communities and partners, Audubon will ensure the protection and restoration of the places birds need. This includes the migratory pathways of today and the refuges birds will seek out as climate impacts worsen, from vast forest to urban canopies.
