The mission of Audubon Washington is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems – focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats – for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.
Audubon Washington is a field office of the National Audubon Society; there are 25 chapters in Washington State. The National Audubon Society was founded in 1905. Local chapters began in Washington in 1916, and the state office, Audubon Washington, was created in 1981 at the request of the chapters. Today, Audubon Washington informs National Audubon Society’s policy and science staff, and develops and manages our own conservation priorities in Washington state.
With assistance from chapter members, we advocate for sustainable conservation policies on the state and federal levels to promote a healthier environment for Washingtonians.
