Audubon New York’s agenda and policy resolutions, outlined below, provide the basis of our collective advocacy efforts for the year. Our positions are developed by integrating input from our members, locally-affiliated chapters, in-house experts, and the Audubon Council of New York State.
This is how we’re protecting birds and the places they need in 2019.
Audubon New York and partners strongly support the creation a bird-friendly building council to address bird collisions with human-made structures.
Audubon New York strongly supports A.7639 (Englebright) / S.5816 (Hoylman), which would prohibit the sale of certain pesticides.
Audubon New York strongly supports A.6520 (Englebright) / S.5871 (Martinez), which would protect habitat around Plum Island, Great Gull, and Little Gull Islands for marine mammals and sea turtle species.
