The mission of the National Audubon Society is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats, for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.

Founded in 1905, The National Audubon Society “Audubon” is a national nonprofit conservation organization with 400,000 members and close to 500 local chapters throughout the Americas. Our mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats, for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity. Focusing on birds as an indicator of overall environmental quality, Audubon employs a range of integrated strategies to engage people in conservation through its national network of community-based nature centers, chapters, Important Bird Areas, scientific and educational programs, and advocacy activities. What has traditionally set Audubon apart from other conservation organizations is its focus on people’s actions as the solution to the environmental challenges we face today. Audubon believes that individuals can make a difference in protecting our environment and develops programs that strive to inspire and empower individuals to help reach its ambitious goals.
