Audubon Arkansas's Policy Priorities:
Audubon Arkansas's policy department works to ensure Arkansas's great natural heritage endures for generations.
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 education and advocacy programs across the state and in our new Audubon Center. Audubon Arkansas helps individuals and communities understand how to make their voices heard on issues of importance to them.
Promote progressive and well planned energy policy that reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and alleviate Arkansas' contribution to global warming.
Audubon Arkansas's clean energy policy work entails fighting dirty coal, promoting energy efficiency, promoting renewable energy, growing green jobs, and promoting comprehensive climate and energy legislation. Audubon works with legislators, government agencies, and community leaders to develop federal and state policy and procedures that benefit the environment and the economy.
Audubon Arkansas works to limit and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by engaging communities threatened by polluting facilities.
Push for water policies that promote responsible stewardship of waterways and watersheds.
Audubon Arkansas strives to conserve and restore natural ecosystems. Nowhere is this more important than in our waterways. A main objective of Audubon is protecting habitat on-the-ground by restoring ecosystems. Our work will be futile if Arkansas does not create a state wide water policy plan that will protect these precious ecosystems. Therefore, Audubon works with legislators, government agencies, and community leaders to develop water policy and procedures that benefit the environment and the economy.
