Audubon Great Lakes 2022 Impact Summary

Audubon Great Lakes made critical strides over the past year, preparing for even greater impact in the year ahead.

Birds face an unprecedented number of threats—none more acute than climate change, which imperils nearly two-thirds of North American species. Audubon Great Lakes knows that protecting birds today and tomorrow in the Great Lakes region requires substantial investments in the places they need most.

Through a powerful mix of policy, partnerships, and effective conservation strategies, along with a strong commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging, Audubon Great Lakes is making an impact on birds and communities across the region. Our voice is amplifying with great urgency that if we can protect birds and the habitats they need, we can secure a better climate future for all.

With your help, we will be able to restore extensive habitat in the highest priority wetlands along the Great Lakes to stabilize declining bird populations. We will continue to provide leadership on applied science that engages our communities, fill critical information gaps, and inform sustainable natural resource management. We will do what we do best - mobilize our network across the region in science, policy, and conservation action and advocate for public policy that supports Great Lakes conservation.
