In the spring of 2016, the National Audubon Society adopted a new strategic plan to renew the organization’s focus on addressing critical threats to birds and their habitat throughout the Western Hemisphere. This plan reaffirms Audubon’s commitment to organizing its conservation work along fours migratory flyways – the Atlantic, Mississippi, Central and Pacific. Each spring and fall, billions of migratory birds follow the flyways of the Americas from wintering to breeding grounds and back again. By protecting the web of life that represents the Americas’ richest veins of biodiversity, Audubon safeguards this natural heritage for future generations. To accomplish this, Audubon connects its powerful network—463 Chapters, 41 nature centers and sanctuaries, 22 state offices, more than 650 state and national staff members, 1 million members and volunteers, and U.S. and international partners—along each of the flyways, to weave a seamless web of conservation across the hemisphere.

Audubon’s 2016 strategic plan creates a roadmap for the next five years, guided by two ideas: by focusing on the needs of bird species, the scale and ambition of its conservation work can match the complexity of 21st century demands; and to do so, Audubon will become the most effective conservation network in America. It is setting its sights on large-scale conservation with a focus on five crosscutting conservation strategies--climate, coasts, working lands, water, and bird friendly communities. Audubon seeks to build a durable public will for conservation by broadening and deepening its support base, with a focus on increasing diversity and promoting inclusion.
