Help us expand our outreach on conservation issues.
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.
Each session, Mass Audubon identifies a number of important environmental bills as policy priorities. Find out which ones we’re working on now, what you can do to help, and our position on other critical state and federal issues. Learn More >
