Advocate

Advocating for Transformative Environmental Policy

From defending endangered species to combatting the climate crisis, Mass Audubon has spent over one hundred years advocating for policies that protect the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife.

Our team of policy experts, conservation scientists, and community organizers is working every day to pass powerful environmental regulations through the Massachusetts state legislature. We research innovative policy solutions, lobby legislators, and organize our communities to build a mass movement around using nature as a solution to the climate crisis.

More than anything, we rely on people like you to volunteer, lobby your representatives, and spread our message. We hope you’ll join us as we fight to stop the climate crisis and protect the nature of Massachusetts.

Restore Horseshoe Crabs

Decades of overexploitation have depleted horseshoe crab populations, placing the shorebirds that depend on their eggs at risk. We’re pushing for strong protections for this unique and essential species—and we need your help.

Growing Solar, Protecting Nature

To fight the climate crisis, we must build the solar energy we need while protecting the natural lands we have. Mass Audubon and Harvard Forest have charted a path towards achieving both.

Rescue Raptors

Raptors, foxes, and other predators balance Massachusetts' ecosystems. But these iconic creatures are being sickened and killed after eating poisoned rodents. We're working to rescue raptors by reducing the use of deadly rodent poisons.
