For conservation to last, we NEED to restore our connection and accessibility to birds and open space in urban and suburban communities.
Mission and Vision
Urban Bird’s mission is to engage, educate and nurture a broad-based constituency to ensure the conservation of bird populations, and preserve the interconnected relationship between people and nature.
Our vision is Birds. People. Communities. A better, sustainable living for all.
How We’re Different
There’s a lot of bird and wildlife organizations doing great work and we’ve partnered with many of them. But, we’re not your typical organization and we are certainly not a big box nonprofit with tens or hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.
We’re a scrappy grassroots organization not afraid to ruffle feathers. We’re the bulldog large organizations have helped behind the scenes to get a job done that might otherwise have upset politicians or their corporate partners. We’re the ones employees leak information to when agencies and companies fail to follow environmental laws. We’re the ones who believe nature needs to be protected in our communities and not outsourced far away to mitigation banks out of convenience or for money.
To save birds, we conduct undercover operations, rescue injured birds, stand down bulldozers, watchdog development sites, and create habit from unlikely sources. Our business is birds and wildlife. That’s it!
A Brighter, Sustainable Future
We seek a way forward to a healthy, sustainable planet for birds, people and their interconnected human and wildlife communities. Our work is rooted in the principles of sustainable development — social, environment and economics. We seek to instill in people everywhere that prosperity absolutely does not have to come at the cost of losing green space, wildlife and human health. In order to achieve strong, healthy and vibrant communities, we need to build connections to nature, not barriers against nature.
At Urban Bird, we understand the issues and we have bold, innovative and science-based solutions that are beneficial for bird populations, human health and economics.
By 2020, Urban Bird will develop a broad-based constituency to preserve our connection to nature, the nation’s most important component of conservation, by working in partnership with others to:
