Global Warming & Energy:
With the support of the National Audubon Society and others, Montana Audubon is working to educate our constituents about the urgent threats of global climate change and what each of us can do to make a positive difference.
We support renewable energy done right and are working to ensure that wind energy producers do not locate their farms in critical habitat for birds and other wildlife.

Sagebrush & Grasslands:
Sagebrush shrubsteppe and grassland habitats in Montana support incredible biodiversity - from the "umbrella" Greater Sage-Grouse to a number of sage-associated bird species to our grassland dependent birds. We are working to protect these vital lands from energy and other development, poor grazing practices, and tillage of these lands. Learn more >>
Other Hot Issues:
Montana Audubon works on numerous issues that affect birds, other wildlife and their habitats. Summer 2011 brought the Yellowstone oil spill, and we have worked on Russian olive prohibition and pelicans & cormorants. These are are three hot issues for us.
