Audubon is a respected and influential voice on public policy issues, from town halls to the U.S. Capitol. We have the power to convene diverse stakeholders to solve even the toughest problems. Audubon Arkansas’s policy department works with federal, state and local officials to promote policies to protect and preserve Arkansas’s great natural heritage. Our policy priorities include:

  • Building a culture of conservation - To fulfill our mission, Audubon Arkansas needs sustained public support and funding from people who care about a healthy environment for both humans and wildlife. Audubon promotes our conservation science through education and advocacy programs across the state and in our Little Rock Audubon Center. Audubon Arkansas helps individuals and communities understand how to make their voices heard on issues of importance to them.
  • Smart Energy Policy - Audubon is working for increased energy efficiency, rapid deployment of cost effective renewable energy technologies, and legislative initiatives to shape a healthy climate and clean energy future.
  • Habitat Protection - Audubon Arkansas strives to conserve and restore important and imperiled natural ecosystems. A main objective of Audubon is protecting habitat on-the-ground.
