You are what hope looks like to a bird!

Anyone can speak up for birds. No special experience or expertise is needed—just a love of birds and the places that they need. Advocacy can range from quick and simple acts like signing a campaign letter, to engaging with the community on behalf of birds, or meeting with elected officials about what needs to be done so that birds and people can thrive.

Sign a National Audubon Society campaign letter here (check back monthly for new campaigns): https://www.audubon.org/takeaction

Energy Storage for a Brighter Future

Changes to our climate are hitting close to home—even at our backyard feeders, where species like the American Goldfinch and Brown-headed Nuthatch are at risk of extinction. More than 200 bird species in North Carolina are threatened because of hotter weather, heavier rains, and rising seas. Birds need clean energy solutions now.

Audubon North Carolina launched a 2020 energy storage campaign to fight for the energy innovations and infrastructure changes that birds and people need now. To learn more or join our team contact us at audubonwakevolunteer@gmail.com
