Policy Protections for Birds and Lands

Audubon NC works with lawmakers and partner conservation organization directors to help enact policies that consider the well-being of birds. We work closely with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and many more public and private partners to continuously cultivate programs that further the impact of Audubon’s Working Lands Initiative.
