Audubon Florida Protects Quality of Life for Birds and People

Our environment is our economy.

Here at Audubon Florida, we focus on using sound science to advocate for common sense solutions to challenges facing the Sunshine State. From clean water to clean energy, natural landscapes to special places, we are here to protect Floridians’ prosperity and quality of life. Conservation is good for the environment - and our economy too. Tourism, property values, healthy agriculture, and even our thriving defense industry depends upon resilient natural resources, not only now but long into the future.

We are biologists, policy wonks, educators, community members, and volunteers. Join us to protect water, wildlife, and people.

Giving

Your dollars can make a tremendous impact. Gifts to Audubon support our biologists in Florida Bay collecting data that informs Everglades restoration, underwrite a team of coastal stewards protecting beach-nesting bird sites on a crowded holiday weekend, and allow students to experience Florida’s natural wonders at one of our Centers and Sanctuaries. Investing in conservation is an investment in our continued prosperity.

If you are 70 ½ and older, you may make income tax-free outright gifts (up to $100,000) from your IRA to Audubon – which counts towards your required minimum distribution. To find out more about making a gift from your IRA and the many ways you can make a gift contact Suzanne.bartlett@audubon.org.

Throughout the year Audubon Florida keeps tabs on local and state-level policies that impact the quality of life for both birds and people. Join our list of advocates – we need your voice in support of conservation: click here to learn more.
