Protect New Mexico's Water and Wildlife

Help us advocate for and enact legislation at the state and federal level that protects the land, water, and wildlife of New Mexico

As a champion for conserving the wildlife and wild places of New Mexico you have helped our state become a leader in addressing humanity’s greatest challenge—climate  change. By making your voice heard through donations, advocacy, and at the ballot box you were instrumental in the passage of the Energy Transition Act, putting the state on a path towards 100% non-carbon power generation by 2045, a major step towards securing a clean and green future for the planet.

But this is just the beginning. With your gift you will be helping to advocate for and enact legislation at the state and federal level that protects the land, water, and wildlife of New Mexico.

Our native southwestern bird species are some of the most vulnerable to climate change. By mid-century the Pinyon Jay and the Burrowing Owl will experience catastrophic habitat loss (93% and 78% decline in breeding habitat respectively) if we do not act now to reduce atmospheric carbon.

At Audubon we remain vigilant in our advocacy for the natural world and as we transition to a carbon-free economy our collective efforts will be needed more than ever. With the help of your gift, we will work with industry to properly site renewable energy projects to avoid bird mortality and habitat loss. We will make certain that our rivers continue to flow in times of climate uncertainty, and will ensure that the next generation of New Mexicans grows up understanding the beauty of the natural world and their responsibility to conserve it.

Please consider making a donation to Audubon New Mexico today! 100% of your donations support Audubon’s unique blend of science, on-the-ground action and advocacy in the Land of Enchantment. When you give, you will join a growing chorus of conservation champions whose collective voice has become impossible to ignore.

On behalf of the wildlife and wild places of New Mexico, thank you for caring, thank you for giving, and thank you for speaking out,


Jonathan Hayes
Vice President and Executive Director
