National Audubon Society
Ohio Outreach Coordinator
Audubon’s mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife and their habitats for the benefit
of humanity and our planet’s biological diversity. For more than a century, Audubon has built a legacy of conservation success by
mobilizing the strength of its network of members, chapters, Audubon Centers, state offices and dedicated professional staff who
connect people with nature and empower them to protect it. A potent combination of science, education and policy expertise
merge in efforts ranging from protection and restoration of local habitats to the implementation of policies that safeguard birds,
other wildlife and the resources that sustain us all.
Audubon’s peer-reviewed research concludes that climate change is the most immediate and significant threat to the future
existence of birds in North America. In September 2014, Audubon released a nationwide study with the clear message that half of
North America’s birds are at serious risk from climate change. The study incorporates more than a century of science to predict how
birds’ ranges will shift, shrink, or expand in the coming decades due to the changing climate.
