Since acquiring its first sanctuary in the 1960s, NH Audubon has been committed to the conservation of ecologically important lands. NH Audubon currently owns 39 wildlife sanctuaries totaling over 7,400 acres and holds 27 conservation easements totaling over 2,500 acres.
Our land protection program primarily focuses on acquiring land that would add to the protection, management or educational value of existing wildlife sanctuaries.
NH Audubon also considers other land protection priorities including:
NH Audubon is proud to be a Principal Partner of the Great Bay Resource Protection Partnership, a group of organizations committed to protecting the important habitats of the Great Bay region.
