AMÉRICA VIVA ALLIANCE is proud to count with the support of AUDUBON (National Audubon Society) the leading American non-profit environmental organization dedicated to conservation of birds and their habitats. Created in 1905, Audubon is one of the oldest and most respected of such organizations in the world.
Audubon is highly regarded not only for their conservation efforts but also for promoting integration and
connectivity among people throughout the Americas. By emphasizing the shared responsibility to conserve bird habitats, the society fosters international cooperation and collaboration.
Through inclusivity and engagement with diverse communities, it bridges cultural divides and cultivates a sense of unity. Audubon's efforts transcend national borders, creating a collective commitment to protect the interconnected ecosystems and migratory bird species that span the Americas.
Senior Vice President for "Audubon Americas"
"With 'Audubon Americas' we're saying that we're looking from Canada all the way down to Chile and Argentina—deliberately bringing that sort of connectivity of the Americas. We're all Americans. People from Chile are Americans. People from the U.S. are Americans. We're saying something that birds remind us of: We are all part of the same hemisphere, and the conservation work we do in a specific country has repercussions on the life cycle of species in other regions of the Americas. We want to elevate a simple but powerful concept for biodiversity: Protecting wildlife and the places they live means working across the hemisphere, across disciplines, across regions, languages, ethnicity, cultures. That’s what makes the Americas unique."
"The migratory birds of the Americas are sharing a clear message across the hemisphere: flying together takes us further.
We need to erase national borders to achieve solutions with hemispheric impact, and join forces to obtain funds that allow for sustainability."
Audubon's Statement on Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging
The birds Audubon pledges to protect differ in color, size, behavior, geographical preference, and countless other ways. By honoring and celebrating the equally remarkable diversity of the human species, Audubon will bring new creativity, effectiveness and leadership to our work throughout the hemisphere.
