Audubon.org is Now Bilingual!

Audubon.org now offers the entire Field Guide to North American Birds in Spanish, making it the first online, free Spanish-language bird guide of its kind. Not only is the bird guide translated, there is also Spanish content from the award-winning Audubon magazine, news from communities across the Audubon network, and more. Please have a browse—and feel free to use it as a way to support any local outreach efforts to Spanish-speaking communities. Also available on Audubon Works* are social media posts and email text in Spanish, and photos to help you spread this exciting news.

Endangered Species Day - May 20

On May 20, Endangered Species Day is a special way to highlight success stories and reminders of the importance of protecting the most fragile plants and animals from extinction. And it's a great way to share the story of the 314 bird species threatened by global warming and how best to ensure their survival. This year, many chapter field trips and related activities in May will be registered in the Endangered Species Coalition event calendar. Along with showcasing the important work chapters do to promote species conservation and habitat protection, the site also features good ideas for pairing chapter and Endangered Species Day activities.

 
 

*Join the discussion and share resources with others in the Audubon network through Audubon Works.
