Audubon emphasizes science as the foundation for our advocacy, education, and conservation activities. The Audubon science program guides the organization’s activities, energy and resources. We communicate the state of the birds to citizens and legislators, by presenting solutions to guard against further declines, and by stimulating legislative action to affect public policy.
Audubon gathers scientific information from professional and citizen scientists through a number of established Audubon programs, from the century-old Christmas Bird Count to the more recently established Important Bird Areas Program. Data is rigorously analyzed, interpreted, shared with the public, and informs all our efforts.
