Our Mission: To work with others to deliver high-quality environmental education and to facilitate the sustainable management of land, water, wildlife, and other natural resources in all places people live, work, and play.
Over 25 Years of Helping People Help the Environment
As we approach three decades of helping individuals, organizations and communities achieve conservation successes, Audubon International is refocusing itself to deliver environmental education and help implement sustainable natural resource management in all the places people live, work and play. People across the world are confronted with many environmental and socioeconomic challenges that play out at local, regional, national and international scales. It has become increasingly clear that not-for-profit organizations, government agencies, educational institutions, private sector firms, and many other stakeholders must work together to develop innovative and collaborative approaches that advance natural resource conservation while not sacrificing economic and social goals.
We believe it is critical to expand upon our past successes and continue working with interested stakeholders from all sectors to better connect local conservation lands and natural resource management activities with appropriate regional environmental initiatives. Doing so, will increase our collective capacity to affect the sort of significant change needed to address pressing environmental problems, such as declining biodiversity, habitat loss and fragmentation, invasive species proliferation, water quality and quantity issues, and global climate change. Thank you for visiting our website. I hope we will have the opportunity to further your understanding of and commitment to sustainable natural resource management!
