National Audubon Society
Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and
other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is
engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through
science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By
mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and
Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the
Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear
on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical
habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International,
Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all
working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world,
leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What
defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of
approximately 450 local chapters, 120 campus chapters, 17 state and
regional offices, 34 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50
states, and 700 staff across the country.
