National Audubon Society
Audubon's 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. Nearly 500 local Chapters nationwide engage members in grassroots conservation action; while their environmental policy, education and science experts guide lawmakers, agencies, and grassroots in shaping conservation plans, actions and the policies to support them. More than 2,500 Audubon-designated Important Bird Areas (IBAs) identify, prioritize and protect vital bird habitat from coast to coast. In partnership with BirdLife International, IBA conservation efforts support species and their habitats across the Western Hemisphere. Audubon Centers and sanctuaries are hubs of conservation exploration, research, and action nationwide. Audubon is closely monitoring how climate change is affecting wintering and breeding habitat for birds and their 2009 report found dozens of bird species have been shifting northward over the last 40 years. Their Climate Change Campaign is detailed on the website.
