A Legacy of Bird Conservation in Texas

Audubon Texas is the state’s leading voice for the conservation and protection of natural resources for birds. Integrating science, conservation, policy and education, Audubon’s mission 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.

In Texas, three nature centers provide conservation science education to tens of thousands of Texas students and three conservation programs, Coastal, Prairie & Grassland, and Urban, address the needs of critical bird species across the state. Twenty grassroots Audubon Chapters work and advocate for birds and wildlife in their communities and provide a local view of habitat conservation needs, which, in the end, are all connected.
