The Audubon Philosophy

We believe in the wisdom of nature's design.
We know that soil, water, plants, and wild creatures depend upon each other and are vital to human life.
We recognize that each living thing links to many others in the chain of nature.
We believe that persistent research into the intricate patterns of outdoor life will help to assure wise use of earth's abundance. We condemn no wild creature and work to assure that no living species shall be lost.
We believe that every generation should be able to experience spiritual and physical refreshment in places where primitive nature is undisturbed. So we will be vigilant to protect wilderness areas, refuges, and parks, and to encourage good use of nature's storehouse of resources.
We dedicate ourselves to the pleasant task of opening the eyes of young and old that all may come to
enjoy the beauty of the outdoor world and to share in conserving its wonders forever.
