From defending endangered species to reducing climate change impacts, one of the most effective ways to protect the nature of Massachusetts is through sound environmental policy. Mass Audubon's Advocacy department works with other conservation organizations, legislators, and citizen groups to shape and strengthen environmental laws and regulations.
We inform and educate people about pending legislation and its potential impacts, and enable the public to better understand the government's actions. Working with scientists from Mass Audubon and other organizations, we provide data and analysis to help guide public policy.
We also rely on people like you to help us spread our message!
