Welcome to the Sarasota Audubon Society!

Who We Are
We are the local chapter of the National Audubon Society, dedicated to the protection, conservation and enjoyment of birds, wildlife and the environment here in sunny Sarasota, Florida.

What We Do
Our mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.

We are dedicated to protecting nature and connecting with others using the combination of science, education, and the restoration of our local wildlife habitats.

We invite you to join us!
Did you know birding is one of the most popular outdoor activities in America? According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, there are currently 48 million birders in the United States alone! There are many ways you can get involved:
