Protecting birds and their habitats

Successful advancement of Audubon Dakota’s mission is achieved by focusing on conservation strategies that target habitat protection through on-the-ground conservation. Audubon Dakota’s on-the-ground conservation efforts are further focused through the National Audubon Society’s Climate Report (2014) and Grassland Report (2019) which identify climatic and land use influences on the Northern Great Plains, and provide conservation prioritization areas.
