The National Audubon Society is absolutely one of the best places to start. Its main focus is the preservation and study of bird species and takes a lead role in educating us about the amazing birds that surround us. Membership in the Audubon Society brings you into a community of over 600,000 members, with community-level chapters, and offices in twenty-seven U.S. states. The Audubon Society sponsors a broad range of educational programs for both adults and children. Since the 1930s, scientists have been using the Audubon Society’s sanctuaries as places to study animals, ecosystems, and the effects human activities are having on each of them.
