Summary
A day to recognize the work done by the National Audubon Society to protect birds.

The National Audubon Society protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow, throughout the Americas using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation.

The National Audubon Society is a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to conservation. Located in the United States and incorporated in 1905, Audubon is one of the oldest of such organizations in the world and uses science, education and grassroots advocacy to advance its conservation mission.

John James Audubon, the great artist and naturalist was born at Les Cayes, Santo Domingo (now Haiti), the illegitimate son of a French trader and plantation owner. Audubon led a peripatetic lifeā€”escaping the slave revolts of Santo Domingo to return to Nantes, France, only to face the Revolution. His father sent him to America in 1803 in order to avoid conscription in Napoleon's army.

In America, Audubon set out in 1820 along the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to document and paint all the birds of America. His lively and idiosyncratic paintings made him a great success in America and Europe. His 'Birds of America', published in several volumes from 1827 to 1838, is a landmark of art and printing.
