Conservation  

Seattle Audubon strives to connect people and birds. By building this connection we hope to promote an environmental ethic that we are part of nature not separate from it. The more we understand our interconnections with the animals and the land around us the more willing we will be to make the tough decisions to restore damages of the past and create new interactions with the environment around us that are healthy and sustainable.

 
Canopy Connections (Urban Habitat): Canopy Connections helps to form neighborhood connections among people, birds and habitat to create stronger, healthier and more livable neighborhoods. Whether in our parks, backyards or other parts of the city, urban habitat provides numerous ecosystem services like filtering our air and providing homes for our wildlife. By integrating habitat elements into our development patterns we can ensure the city can continue to grow and prosper while maintaining healthy bird populations and access to green spaces and nature for humans.
 
Regional Conservation Issues: Our regional conservation efforts seek to protect birds and their critical habitats. Our current priorities include improving forest habitat and restoring the health of Puget Sound.  Through this work we are focusing on two species of threatened and endangered birds, the Northern Spotted Owl and the Marbled Murrelet. 
  Resources: Find the links and tools you need to advocate for birds and nature. You'll find links to elected officials, information on how to create a wildlife-friendly backyard habitat, resolutions passed by the Seattle Audubon Board of Directors, and more.
 
Martin Miller Fund: The Martin Miller Fund was started in 1987 for the purpose of acquiring habitat to be protected in perpetuity for plants, animals, birds, fish, and their ecosystems. The fund has helped preserve extensive habitat in the region including wintering habitat for eagles on the Skagit River, a nature reserve on Lummi Island, and a wildlife corridor on Bainbridge Island, among many other land parcels. Seattle Audubon has granted nearly $600,000 from the Martin Miller Fund since its inception.
