Ways to Help

Adopt-a-Bird

Help Houston Audubon reach 30,000 people this year through interactive conservation education programs. Your adoption sponsorship provides these animal ambassadors with food, vet care, housing and supplies so they can continue to bring conservation education into schools, libraries, hospitals, and more. Since these birds can no longer return to the wild, they now receive the best care possible and bring the “wild” to audiences across the Houston-Galveston region thanks to you.

Houston Audubon's animal ambassadors are the hardest working critters in Texas! Inspiring tens of thousands of people eager to learn about native Texas wildlife is a very big job, but we are up for the challenge. Your generous support through the adoption program ensures high quality housing, food, veterinary care, and training for education animals for one year. All adoption levels are fully tax deductible.
