National Audubon Society

Audubon's mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds and other wildlife for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity. Founded in 1905, the National Audubon Society is named for John James Audubon (1785-1851), famed ornithologist, explorer, and wildlife artist.

Millions of individuals participate in Audubon's conservation, education and advocacy programs, supporting the organization at the local, state and national levels.

Audubon has state offices in 27 states, 550,000 members, 500 chapters and Audubon Centers and Sanctuaries throughout the country. Some of their campaigns include conserving marine wildlife through Living Oceans program; Protecting and promoting growth of America's National Wildlife Refuges; Protecting the Upper Mississippi River; Restoration of Florida's Everglades; Restoration of San Francisco Bay Area; and Promoting a responsible U.S. population policy.
