Audubon New York is a respected and influential voice on public policy issues, and a powerful advocate for the birds and people of New York State.
Whether meeting with lawmakers and regulators, speaking out through local media, or collaborating with partners on a coalition to protect New York’s environment, Audubon New York is committed to advancing legislation and policies that conserve and restore our shared natural resources.
Hundreds of thousands of New York jobs and billions of dollars of the state’s gross domestic product depend on clean water, abundant fish and wildlife, and healthy forests to thrive.
That’s why Audubon New York is working tirelessly on behalf of a healthy environment that is rich in biodiversity. Alongside 27 local chapters and 65,000 members, we are solving the state’s toughest problems, from banning offshore drilling to promoting forest regeneration.
By convening diverse stakeholders to advance critical legislation and policies, we are able to take a balanced approach to protect our most threatened bird species and the habitats they depend on in New York State.
