Who we are

The most influential Conservation organization in Connecticut for Birds and Other Wildlife

Through land stewardship, science, education, and advocacy, we work across the state to preserve habitat and protect bird species that are of state, national and global concern; and we identify and support Important Bird Areas (IBAs), a hallmark of Audubon’s efforts worldwide.

A Partner Addressing a Wide Range of Environmental and Human Health Concerns

It begins with birds, but our mission connects people to a much wider range of issues, such as preventing air and water pollution. Reducing pesticide use, promoting land conservation, and reducing the impact of global climate change on birds, wildlife, and people

A Leader in Setting a Course for Environmental Sustainability in Connecticut

Through creative public-private alliances, by engaging diverse audiences and by understanding how to invest in a sustainable future, we are charting a new course for Connecticut. Taken together, our approach to conservation is good for the environment and the economy.

The Connecticut State Office of the National Audubon Society

The strength we derive as part of the National Audubon Society enables us to contribute to a broader conservation strategy one that recognizes the need to conserve wildlife on a wide geographic scope.
