Protecting Land & Wildlife

Land conservation is an important component of Mass Audubon’s advocacy work. We lobby state and federal legislators for funding to protect open space for conservation, recreation, and responsible uses like sustainable forestry, farming, and fishing.

Forests

We are also actively involved in efforts to encourage the responsible management of Massachusetts forests and protection of old growth..

Protecting Wildlife

Mass Audubon advocates for the conservation of birds, wildlife, and habitat through our work at the federal, state, and local levels of government. 

Lights Out

Illuminated structures attract birds that fly at night, including many nighttime migrants like orioles, wrens, and warblers. They can become disoriented when passing over a brightly lit skyline, aimlessly circling a skyscraper until they collide with it or collapse from exhaustion. Learn more >

Position on Hunting & Fishing

Mass Audubon does not oppose legal hunting or fishing, but we do support the status quo that prohibits hunting on Sundays. Mass Audubon generally does not currently allow hunting on our properties. More about our position >
