The Bird Migration Explorer Launches Sept. 15
Some species of migratory birds are already flying south and many more are about to start as fall migration picks up in earnest. These amazing birds complete some epic journeys and connect us all across the hemisphere, from Alaska to Argentina.

To celebrate the joy of birds and the wonder of migration, Audubon’s Migratory Bird Initiative has been working with partners and researchers around the world to present the Bird Migration Explorer, a first-of-its-kind digital platform that visualizes the journeys, connections and challenges that bird migration offers us. 

The interactive platform launches on Thursday, September 15th, but please take a look at this primer document and intro video to learn more. Fill out this survey by Friday, September 9 to tell us how you and your chapter would like to stay involved.

Act Soon! Say No to the Willow Project, Protect Millions of Birds in Alaska’s Arctic
Submit a comment by August 29th to urge the Bureau of Land Management to safeguard the Teshekpuk Lake Special Area, a fragile and irreplaceable habitat in the Arctic at risk from oil company ConocoPhillips’ Willow Master Development Plan. More than a dozen Alaska WatchList species nest, molt, or rest near Teshekpuk Lake, including threatened Yellow-billed Loons, Spectacled Eiders, King Eiders, Red-throated Loons, Dunlins, and Buff-breasted Sandpipers. Here is more information on this project’s catastrophic consequences along with a resource on how to share a public comment on the Willow Project. 

Once you are ready to share your perspective, you can send your comment through our Action Alert. Take action

Thank Your Rep. for Supporting Historic Climate Legislation
After a hard-won victory in Congress, last week the President signed the Inflation Reduction Act, the largest piece of U.S. federal legislation ever to address climate change. While it's not everything we hoped for, it's a great place to start. Contact your Members of Congress today to tell them the importance of climate action, and thank those that voted for this historic legislation. Send your thanks
