With your support, we can continue to ensure that birds thrive and survive for generations to come.

You may be asking yourself how you, one person, can make a difference. The answer is that every single person, and every single donation can make an impact. We’ve put together a list to help show some of the ways your donation can be used by Audubon New York to bring conservation to the communities across the state and hope you’ll consider making a donation or getting involved today.

As the leading voice for birds in New York State, Audubon New York protects a seamless web of conservation that spans beyond our great state. We protect birds at every point of their lifecycle while conserving and stewarding critical habitats that birds need now and in a warming climate of the future. We also foster bird-friendly communities in rural, suburban, and urban areas and advance solutions to some of our state’s most critical conservation issues. We work with members, volunteers, and partners in the communities you care about most to ensure a healthy ecosystem for all and individual donations are critical in our effort to advance our work and mission.

Donate today and let's build the future together.
