Audubon NC is involved in regional and international research in the quest to better understand bird ecology. As our understanding grows, we become increasingly effective at saving the birds we cherish. Many people have helped make this journey a successful one. We know you will be inspired by stories about our conservation partners and beloved volunteers.
1,000 private landowners across nine Western NC counties identified for next wave of Working Lands outreach.
In North Carolina, GWWA populations have declined an average of 10 percent every year for the past decade. Even more concerning, these warblers have seen a decline of nearly 98 percent in their entire Appalachian region breeding range.
Our volunteers help lay the groundwork for Audubon NC to identify and engage private landowners in habitat restoration for priority species including the Golden-winged Warbler.
For the North Carolina Audubon Golden-winged Warbler team, the 2013 field season has been a memorable one.
