Advocacy

Audubon Connecticut is the voice for birds, wildlife, and nature. Our staff and network work tirelessly on behalf of a healthy environment, rich in biodiversity. We are a respected and influential voice on a national level in Washington, D.C., with the legislature in Hartford, Connecticut, and at the municipal level in towns and cities throughout the state, fighting for laws and policies that benefit birds, other wildlife, and people.

From clean air and water to support for the state’s forests, coast, and other natural habitats, many of the same issues that touch people also touch birds. As a supporter of Audubon, you, too, have a critical role to play as an advocate of conservation, ensuring that our policymakers at the local, state, and federal level support strong environmental laws and conservation action.

If we don't act now, our pristine tidal marshes, unbroken swaths of woodlands, and swells of whispering grasslands will continue to vanish, taking with them the diversity of birds and wildlife that make Connecticut such a wonderful place.

Take action via any or all of our initiatives below, and click here to join our network. You'll be the first to hear about opportunities to help birds in your area or nationwide.
