The Orleans Audubon Society is dedicated to the preservation and conservation of wildlife and wild places of the southeastern U.S. and to fostering an understanding and appreciation of nature.
The Orleans Audubon Society is a Section 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization founded in 1949 and incorporated in the State of Louisiana on November 17, 1970.
We are a Chapter of the National Audubon Society, servicing the following parishes: Washington, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Orleans, Terrebonne, Jefferson, St. Charles, St. Bernard, Plaquemines, and La Fourche Parishes.
A ground-breaking planning effort by the state’s Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) shows that while the future looks bleak, we have the opportunity to take bold action to SAVE the coast and SECURE south Louisiana’s future.
The CPRA's 2012 Coastal Master Plan is based on a two-year analysis involving some of the state's best scientists as well as national and international specialists. The state used this analysis to select 145 high-performing protection and restoration projects that could deliver measurable benefits to our communities and coastal ecosystem over the coming decades. The plan shows that if these projects were fully funded, at a price tag of $50 billion, we could substantially increase flood protection for communities and create a sustainable coast.
