Audubon Connecticut believes our conservation work is enriched and made stronger by the contributions of individuals and communities with diverse experiences, perspectives, and values.

With a plurality of voices, Audubon will inspire more people and conserve more habitats. Respect, inclusion, and opportunity for people of all backgrounds, lifestyles and perspectives will attract the best ideas and harness the greatest passion to shape a healthier, more vibrant future for all of us.

We strive to represent and reflect human diversity, and embrace it in the communities where we work. To that end, we are committed to increasing the diversity of our staff, board, volunteers, members, and supporters, and to fostering an inclusive network across our statewide Audubon Centers and Chapters in all kinds of communities, from rural to urban.

Protecting and conserving Connecticut’s natural heritage transcends political, cultural, and social boundaries, and so must Audubon in order to expand our network’s reach and engage more people in protecting birds and the places they need.
