Seattle Audubon Science Committee

Seattle Audubon's Science Program initiates, encourages, manages and coordinates science-based projects. It provides a scientific basis and analysis of advocacy initiatives, positions, and legal proceedings. Science committee members draw on professional experience and credentials in field biology, ecology, research, and analysis.

Activities of Seattle Audubon, including advocacy, monitoring and litigation, must always be based on the best available scientific knowledge and theory. The Science Program provides advice on these activities from its own committee and from the outside scientific community. The program also sponsors a variety of science-based projects to enrich our knowledge and enjoyment of birds and their (and our) environment.
