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.
Our policy priorities for the 129th Maine Legislature include:
- Strengthening Maine’s Endangered Species Act;
- Advocating for a comprehensive statewide strategy to transition to a low-carbon economy, as well as for policies that ensure we hit our carbon pollution targets in a timely way;
- Securing at least $75 million for the Lands for Maine Future program, which to date has conserved over 600,000 acres of working forests, farms, and waterfronts;
- Rebuilding the core functions of the Maine’s Bureau of Parks and Lands with a sharp focus on conserving older forests.
We welcome your participation in our efforts, and we thank you for all you have done and will do to help protect Maine’s waters, land, and wildlife. Signing up for our Action Alerts will keep you informed. You can also get involved through our regional Chapters, which are the backbone of our citizen activist network. Thank you!
