The top 5 threats facing birds and what Audubon going to do about them

Long-billed Curlew.
You love birds. And so do we.

How such beautiful creatures can be so resilient, facing the everyday challenges of the natural world and the feats of long migrations, is truly remarkable. But over the next five years birds will face major threats outside of their control:

  • Sharp declines in critical ecosystems like the Everglades and the Arctic
  • Water scarcity and poor water quality
  • Loss of habitat due to urban development
  • Unsustainable land and fisheries management
  • Changing climate

Together we must address these challenges on behalf of the birds we love. As a leader in bird conservation, Audubon is right at the forefront of this charge to protect birds and their habitats from these threats.

How will we do it? Check out this interactive guide to find out:

As always, thank you for your support. Together we can create a brighter future for birds.

P.S. If you want to help tackle one of the threats right now, please urge your U.S. Representative to co-sponsor and support the Federal Bird-Safe Buildings Act, a bipartisan, no-cost, common sense solution to help birds avoid collisions with buildings.
