To conserve and restore South Florida ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife and their habitats.
Our COVID-19 Message
The health and well-being of our Tropical Audubon Society members, volunteers, interns and staff is always our top priority. In response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we have taken proactive steps to protect our flock and our community. To minimize transmission risks, our Doc Thomas House headquarters is presently closed until further notice. On Monday, our staff began working remotely. Birding trips and events through the end of March have been cancelled or postponed. We will re-evaluate our position on an ongoing basis and keep you informed.
We are all in this together, and while our personal circumstances vary, we share an enduring love of birds and nature. At a time like this, birds can bring us joy and provide a much-needed connection to the natural world. Birding in your backyard or further afield is the perfect prescription for fresh air and social distancing. You can also join our online birding forums to share your sightings and stay abreast of local birding updates. (Visit the Bird Board. on our website or join our new Facebook Bird Board.)
Be assured that despite these uncertain times, we remain steadfastly committed to our Mission: To conserve and restore South Florida ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife and their habitats.
Going forward, please be safe and follow the guidelines of the CDC and local authorities. We are confident that we will emerge from our present challenge as a stronger community.
For a complete update on cancellations and postponements, see our updated "March with the Birds" calendar below.
