Building a Stronger, Resilient Coast

The places birds need are important for people, too.

Throughout the Long Island Sound and Atlantic coastline, rising sea levels, stronger storms, and human development are squeezing salt marsh and beach habitats.

This natural infrastructure is essential to protecting our local communities from extreme coastal events. We need it to be resilient to change.

Join us! We’re taking action now to build a better future.

GIVE VOICE: Our ACTION NETWORK speaks up for birds and engages lawmakers in our efforts to manage forage fish populations, protect important sites like Plum Island, and create bird-friendly renewable energy projects.

EXPERIENCE: Our LIVING SHORELINE project at Stratford Point is a great example of how we can re-establish salt marshes to protect our local communities. This incredible living laboratory is engaging scientists, university students, local businesses, and local people in community science.

VISIT AND LEARN: Visit our Greenwich Audubon Center (Greenwich) and Bent of the River Audubon Center (Southbury), where coastal issues are brought to life via FREE PUBLIC EVENTS and programs.
