NHA does great work that helps to protect the state's resources and educates others about them. The bald eagle surveys have informed regulatory requirements associated with hydropower licenses. The peregrine falcon webcam by providing close up views of peregrine falcons from hatching to fledging also grows viewers' appreciation of our avian neighbors! The conservation staff does significant research on rare birds in New Hampshire.

NH Aubudon is dedicated to protecting New Hampshire's environment for wildlife and people. It has a staff of biologists who conduct research on wildlife and habitat so we have the information to make careful changes to protect and improve the quality of environment for wildlife in New Hampshire.
It has a team of dedicated naturalists who bring wildlife into schools for educational programs and who conduct programs at its five centers throughout the state. All of its programming is designed to link people to the environment and wildlife to build a statewide organization of people who care and want to make a difference in our environment.
While birds are a focus for the organization, it also studies dragonflies, mammals, and all of the wildlife in the state.

I have participated in banding fledgling peregrine falcons, five little fluffy white creatures from the wild. A quick hold, clamp on the band, and it's over. Those bands let us follow the progress of the birds and learn where they roam, how long they live, and more. Careful monitoring of these birds has let us know that we have made changes in the environment (banning DDT) that have helped peregrine falcons as well as bald eagles recover their populations in this state.

I would find the money to fund all of the positions at the full time level. Right now, because of the pressures faced by all non-profits, NH Audubon has cut the hours its staff work. It is surviving, but giving its staff more time to do their work would be wonderful and would reap benefits for the whole state.

NH Audubon is a dedicated organization to the preservation of NH wildlife and habitat and provides educational programs to all age groups. Their biologists are dedicated ... just look at their successes with bald eagles, peregrine falcons and osprey in the state. The Board of Trustees are hard-working and dedicated. Their new President has in the last couple years brought the morale of the staff to an all-time high. I am proud to be a loyal supporter and member.

Last year I watched a live webcam of a pair of falcons rear their chicks in a nest that was provided by NHA. I then watched first-hand as a NHA biologist banded these chicks. This year, the same pair is back in the nest and I am currently watching them with their newly laid eggs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase the size of their fundraising staff to enable the organization to raise more money so it can grow its programs.
