Species are declining – but you can help!

Audubon South Carolina’s priority birds are those whose conservation challenges are significant, and whose status our work can measurably improve.  Often a priority bird is an “umbrella species” – meaning that by protecting it we also protect other birds, other wildlife, and our state's iconic landscapes.

Nationally, Audubon has a long list of priority birds.  Here in South Carolina we focus on the species below:

Coastal Priorities

Forest Priorities
