What is Audubon’s mission?
Audubon's mission is to protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. We conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds and their habitats, for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity.
How will my donation be used?
Your contributions support science, education, advocacy, and on-the-ground action for birds and the places and resources they need—work that inspires and empowers people to protect them.
These priorities encompass the range of places and resources birds need to thrive, including resilient shorelines, clean lakes, bird-safe cities, and healthy habitat strongholds that will sustain birds as the climate changes and their old homes disappear.
You can learn more about the critical programs and efforts that your donation supports by visiting Audubon.org/Conservation. Audubon has received four out of four stars from Charity Navigator.
