About Us

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, 859 members strong, servicing the following parishes: Washington, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, St. John the Baptist, Orleans, Terrebonne, Jefferson, St. Charles, St. Bernard, Plaquemines, and Lafourche Parishes.


Swallow-tailed Kite in Flight


Please consider making a year end contribution to the Orleans Audubon Society. We have a number of bird conservation and monitoring projects we are seeking funding for. One of our newest is the Purple Martin Causeway Roost Monitoring Project, spearheaded by Dr. Peter Yaukey. This is also our second year of surveys documenting Wintering Peregrine Falcons in Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico. OAS is also continuing a long-term Population Ecology Study on the Swallow-tailed Kite in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.

We also need financial help maintaining and improving our three wildlife sanctuaries located in Terrebonne, Jefferson and St. Tammany parishes. We are planning a number of habitat-related improvements at the Marguerite Moffett Audubon Sanctuary, the Copeland Grand Isle Sanctuary, and the Fischer Wildlife Sanctuary.
