Birds across North America are in peril, but research from our Science Team shows that Audubon’s conservation actions are making an impact: along our coasts, 77 percent of priority species — birds of concern that benefit most from our targeted conservation action — are more abundant in places Audubon works. The Audubon Priority Birds Report looks at how our priority birds have fared over the past 50 years, and shares case studies of the actions we are taking across the network to slow or reverse population declines. Come learn more about the Audubon Priority Birds Report, and what it tells us about the difference we’re making for birds and people.
Nicole Michel is the Director of Quantitative Science with the National Audubon Society’s Science Team. She joined Audubon in 2015 and leads a team of scientists responsible for analyzing bird population trends from programs like the Christmas Bird Count, and developing metrics to track bird response to Audubon’s conservation actions. She holds a Ph.D. in Ecology from Tulane University, completed two postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Saskatchewan, and has studied birds for >25 years. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her two indoor cats.
