A message from Audubon Alaska's Executive Director

As the number of COVID-19 cases grows around the world, we see a powerful illustration of the inextricable link between human health, the environment, and each other. We are being asked as societies to self-quarantine, limit contact with others, and emulate social responsibility on behalf of our communities. As we necessitate requirements for public health such as hand washing, social distancing, staying home if we are sick, it is equally important to advocate for communities and individuals who are most vulnerable.

Watching the golden-crowned sparrows return north is an opportunity to be outside while social distancing (or watching through windows) and getting a much needed break from the news.
