Rising to the Environmental Challenges of Our Time
Travis Kemnitz, San Diego Audubon Society
San Diego is the most biologically rich county in the U.S. and simultaneously has more animals and plants on the endangered species list than any other county. While we continue to celebrate and enjoy this rich diversity, now is the time to take bold action to protect what remains and address the numerous environmental threats we face. For over 70 years, San Diego Audubon Society has fostered the protection and appreciation of birds, other wildlife, and their habitats, through education and study, and advocated for a cleaner, healthier environment. Learn about SDAS' programs that are making a difference locally and efforts to engage more people in the cause, and how you can get involved.
