Policy & Advocacy

Advocating on behalf of public policies that are in the best interest of Maine’s wildlife and habitat is a key pillar of Maine Audubon’s mission.

Our approach is science-based, measured, and inclusive, and it depends in large part on our network of citizen activists, who prove again and again that people are the secret to successful advocacy.

Maine Audubon maintains a constant presence in Augusta, our state capital, where we advocate in front of legislative committees and work collaboratively with natural resource agencies as the state’s leading wildlife conservation organization. We also advocate at the federal level on policies that impact Maine, especially now as our nation’s bedrock environmental laws face increasing threats.
