Saving birds and their habitats is at the core of what we do

Because of the importance of California to birds, Audubon has had a strong presence here for more than 100 years – represented by the National Audubon Society, local chapters, and many thousands of members and supporters. Audubon California, acting as a field program of the National Audubon Society since 1996, has a long list of accomplishments on behalf of birds and nature. Recent examples include legislation to remove toxic lead from ammunition, an agreement to safeguard habitat for birds at Owens Lake, establishment of protected areas for marine birds along the coast, and an introduction to nature for thousands of children at our centers and sanctuaries.
All of our victories for are made possible by the unique way that Audubon California works. Building from our origins as a grassroots movement powered by peoples’ love of birds, our organization works on the local, state, and national levels, seeking out partnerships with chapters, government agencies, and other nonprofit organizations. We have a reputation for building sensible, non-partisan solutions to conservation challenges. If conservation is a journey, we invite people to join us on that journey, and to share in our success.
