Frequently Asked Questions
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?
Donations made to Audubon support our work across five core priorities: Coasts, Climate, Working Lands, Water, and Bird-Friendly Communities.
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.
