National Audubon Society

Now in its second century, the National Audubon Society connects people with birds, other wildlife and the habitats we all share. Audubon has been a force and voice on behalf of Gulf Coast birds and communities for more than 80 years, protecting waterbird breeding colonies in Texas, reaching underserved communities in Mississippi, mobilizing volunteers in Alabama and taking on polluters in Florida.

In Louisiana, home to Audubon’s oldest and largest wildlife sanctuary, we face one of our biggest challenges: the catastrophic collapse of the Mississippi River Delta. A transformational grant from the Walton Family Foundation has enabled us to band together with many partners and start tackling the big questions critical to rebuilding a healthy, productive deltaic ecosystem.

By providing scientific leadership, proposing pragmatic solutions, delivering on-the-ground conservation results, and cultivating new and powerful constituencies, we will produce systemic change – change that will benefit birds and people alike.

The video below showcases some of the work being done in the Mississippi River Delta.
