About the Organization

New Jersey Audubon

The New Jersey Audubon Society (NJA) is a statewide, privately supported, not-for–profit, conservation organization. Founded in 1897, it is one of the oldest independent Audubon societies, as NJA has no connection with the National Audubon Society. NJA’s mission is to connect all people to nature and steward the nature of today for all people of tomorrow. NJA’s mission is governed by its organizational goals and strategic conservation priorities. The overarching goals include taking actions to sustain healthy populations of wildlife, plants, insects, and fisheries in light of the overwhelming losses of wildlife and their populations globally; supporting conservation strategies and policies that address the effects of climate change and creating resilient communities for wildlife and people; providing leadership and support for large-scale conservation initiatives addressing wildlife, land and water conservation, and environmental literacy; and ensuring New Jersey Audubon is diverse, equitable, and inclusive for the achievement of their conservation priorities.
