Welcome to Audubon Alaska

Protecting Alaska's birds and wildlife with science-driven conservation since 1977.

From the icy, bountiful waters of the Arctic Ocean to the misty, salmon-rich rainforests of the Tongass National Forest, Audubon Alaska works to conserve the spectacular birds and wildlife—and their habitats—of the Great Land to ensure their place for future generations. We employ science and cutting-edge mapping technology to drive our conservation priorities, with an emphasis on public lands and waters. Millions of birds flock to Alaska each spring from around the globe, making this a crucial place for birds worldwide.
