Protecting birds and their habitats

Audubon's mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity. We envision a Connecticut with a rich and diverse natural heritage, where there is ample habitat for birds and other wildlife, where a majority of its people appreciate and participate in their natural environment, and whose children are educated and motivated to become the conservation leaders of tomorrow.
Audubon Connecticut—a state office of the National Audubon Society—is one of Connecticut's premier conservation and environmental education organizations. With the support of its Board of Directors, our top-notch staff of seasoned professionals works hard to carry out the Audubon mission within the state—protecting birds, other wildlife, and their habitats through education, research, advocacy, and land protection.
The National Audubon Society has had a presence in Connecticut dating back to 1943 with the establishment of the Audubon Center in Greenwich as the first National Audubon Society Nature Education Center in the country.
