Maine Audubon works to conserve Maine’s wildlife and wildlife habitat by engaging people in education, conservation, and action.
In fulfilling this mission they:
- Provide hands-on, experiential nature programs especially designed to excite curiosity and introduce the concept of wildlife stewardship to over 8,000 students a year.
- Promote public awareness of lake ecology issues through our annual statewide Loon Count and involvement in state lake policy initiatives.
- Lead walks, trips, and wilderness expeditions that bring people into nature and help instill in them an understanding of and appreciation for conserving our natural resources.
- Monitor and manage the breeding colonies of endangered Piping Plovers and Least Terns to set them on the road to recovery.
- Advocate for local, state, and federal public policies that benefit wildlife and protect critical habitat.
- Lead education projects in schools, towns, and for the public around the importance of Maine native plants through our “Bringing Nature Home” initiative; we also grow and sell native plants every summer.
- Develop and promote tools for policy-makers, municipalities, and individuals to embrace renewable energy with wildlife in mind.
