We enjoy and protect birds through
education, conservation, and advocacy.
Some of the Earth's greatest bird populations are threatened by development, competition for food, and environmental changes. Join Ogeechee Audubon's effort to protect birds and other wildlife while sharing the joy of Georgia's natural resources.

Our partner, Oatland Island Wildlife Center, was hit by a tornado on July 27. It appears their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/OatlandIsland/) is the best place to get updated information. Per their Facebook page post:
“We were hit by a F1 tornado. Animals and staff are ok. Our buildings and enclosures did sustain significant damage we will be closed for an unknown amount of time. We appreciate the outpouring of support. “
To help out financially, Friends of Oatland Island has started a fund, use this link to donate: https://www.friendsofoatland.org/
