Leading protection for birds and their habitats

Audubon implements five strategic initiatives to further the protection of all birds, with an emphasis on our most threatened birds, across North Carolina. As part of the Atlantic Flyway, North Carolina is an important location for birds that need specific habitats to safely breed, rest and migrate. Our five initiatives hone in on providing that safety and the habitat resources that our 473 bird species need to thrive. Our geographic diversity allows for an equally wonderful diversity of bird species that can be found in our state. Audubon North Carolina takes its responsibility for the protection of all birds seriously, basing our programs on sound science and engaging our vast network of supporters and partners to enact preservation where it is needed most.
