Audubon's mission is to conserve and restore
natural ecosystems, focusing on birds and other wildlife for the benefit
of humanity and the earth's biological diversity. Founded in 1905, the
National Audubon Society is named for John James Audubon
(1785-1851), famed ornithologist, explorer, and wildlife artist.
Millions of individuals participate in Audubon's conservation, education and advocacy programs, supporting the organization at the local, state and national levels.

Audubon House, a century-old building in New York City, was renovated by
a team of scientists, engineers and architects to be environmentally and
fiscally responsible. Since its opening in December of 1991, it has served
as a model of sustainable architecture and interior design for government
agencies, institutions, and businesses. Information on how this was done
is provided through the Audubon House book, Building Green
videos, and regularly scheduled tours.
