Audubon in Texas

Bird conservation is at the core of what we do.

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 address the needs of critical bird species in different Texas ecosystems, Coastal, Prairie & Grassland, and Urban Conservation. Twenty grassroots Audubon Chapters across the state 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.
