Mass Audubon Advocacy
How is Mass Audubon working to protect the nature of Massachusetts?
We work with other conservation organizations, legislators, universities and citizen groups to shape, strengthen and ensure the fulfillment of environmental laws, policies and regulations.
We inform and educate people about pending legislation and its potential impact, and enable the public to better understand the government's actions regarding environmental issues.
Working with scientists from Mass Audubon and other organizations, we provide data and analysis to help guide public policy.
You Can Help Mass Audubon!
