Protecting birds and their habitats

Audubon implements five strategic initiatives to further the protection of all birds, with an emphasis on our most threatened birds, across the East Coast as part of the Atlantic Flyway.
What’s in the Plan?

CONSERVATION
At the heart of Audubon’s work are programs that drive full-lifecycle conservation for birds throughout the Americas. We organize our work around five highly scalable core strategic priorities:

Climate Change: Our work focuses on actions that reduce the impact of climate change on birds and protect the habitats they will need to survive in a changing climate.

Working Lands:  Audubon works with policy leaders and landowners and managers to influence land management to support a sustainable future for birds while maintaining the economic productivity of the land.

Water: Audubon is bringing its historic focus on fresh water together under a single strategy built on unique regional needs. Key target areas include the Colorado River and Delta, the Salton Sea, the Everglades, the Mississippi, and the Great Lakes.

Bird-Friendly Communities: This is the local face of the Audubon network’s conservation work, connecting supporters with community, state, flyway, and national opportunities to enjoy birds and to take meaningful conservation action to protect them.
