Protecting birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow

Audubon Washington is a field office of the National Audubon Society. Our mission is to protect birds and the places they need by using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation. Nature centers, chapters, and partners give Audubon Washington an unparalleled wingspan that reaches over 50,000 people each year to inform, inspire, and unite diverse communities in conservation action. 

We do this work because we understand the importance of nature and natural systems in our lives--for our economic well-being, for our enjoyment, and for ethical and spiritual benefits. We are organized as a network of chapters that collectively engage people in learning about birds, caring about and for birds, and taking action to save birds and the places they need now and in the future. We focus our work on four strategies: Coasts, Climate, Working lands, and Bird-Friendly Communities, because we know that when you focus on protecting the birds, you end up protecting the earth.
