New York City Audubon

Founded in 1979, NYC Audubon works for the protection of wild birds and habitat in the five boroughs, improving the quality of life for all New Yorkers. NYC Audubon’s conservation and science activities, education and public programs, and advocacy and outreach efforts on behalf of urban and migrating birds and wildlife are more critical than ever due to climate change effects and the devastating, steady loss of the natural environment in the City over many decades. NYC Audubon is a grassroots membership-based organization that is independent from but affiliates as an urban chapter of the National Audubon Society.

A team of 14 full-time and part-time staff, with the support of seasonal scientists and 1,500 volunteers, NYC Audubon serves a diverse community of nearly 10,000 direct and National-affiliated members and the people who live and work in America’s largest urban center.
