Birds and other wildlife need our help more than ever. Our chapter is actively committed to conserving birds and the places they need, and a key element of our advocacy work is supporting efforts to protect climate-impacted bird species. For more information about birds and climate change, check out Survival by Degrees: Audubon's in-depth study of climate change and birds, released in 2019.

We carefully select relevant and important issues to share, which means we won't overload your inbox with email. You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link that will appear at the bottom of every email.
