For more than 100 years, Mass Audubon has worked to protect the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife. Today, one of our biggest goals is to address climate change through conservation, education, and advocacy. Doing so requires an engaged and informed voting public, and Mass Audubon is uniquely suited to create and support a climate-literate community in Massachusetts. To learn more about what Mass Audubon is doing to confront climate change, visit www.massaudubon.org/our-conservation-work/climate-change.
Mass Audubon works to protect the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife. Together with more than 100,000 members, we care for 35,000 acres of conservation land, provide school, camp, and other educational programs for 225,000 children and adults annually, and advocate for sound environmental policies at local, state, and federal levels. Founded in 1896 by two inspirational women who were committed to the protection of birds, Mass Audubon has grown to become a powerful force for conservation in New England. Today we are respected for our sound science, successful advocacy, and innovative approached to connecting people and nature. Each year, our statewide network of wildlife sanctuaries welcomes nearly half a million visitors of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds and serves as a base for our work.
