Wildlife Research & Conservation
Mass Audubon's Conservation Science teams work at our wildlife sanctuaries and beyond to ensure that the nature of Massachusetts continues to thrive.
By scientifically monitoring Massachusetts wildlife, Mass Audubon informs important conservation decisions and launches targeted initiatives to help at-risk species.
Our approach involves:
- Creating and enhancing habitat on our properties.
- Supporting native plants and wildlife across the state through active land management, species monitoring, and field research.
- Educating and engaging people in learning more about native wildlife through public programs and community science projects.
