National Audubon

BirdNote partners with Audubon and Audubon Magazine to develop and share stories about how people are protecting birds by conserving habitat, engaging in citizen science, and creating bird-friendly communities.


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. For more than a century, Audubon has built a legacy of conservation success by mobilizing the strength of its network of members, chapters, Audubon Centers, state offices, and dedicated professional staff, to connect people with nature and the power to protect it. Learn more about National Audubon and read Audubon Magazine.
