Our Impact

Birds Connect Seattle envisions cities that integrate and value nature, minimize hazards to birds, and protect habitat. We cannot achieve that vision without supporters like you. Please join the Seattle Conservation Activist Network to recieve notifcations when opportunities arise to advocate for cities were people and birds thrive.

Urban Conservation Issues

Birds Connect Seattle works cooperatively with city agencies, other non-profits, and concerned citizens to preserve and protect urban birds and their habitat. 

Regional Conservation Issues

Our regional conservation efforts seek to protect birds and their critical habitats. Our current priorities include improving forest habitat and restoring the health of Puget Sound.  Through this work we are focusing on two species of threatened and endangered birds, the Northern Spotted Owl and the Marbled Murrelet.

Martin Miller Fund

The Martin Miller Fund was started in 1987 for the purpose of acquiring habitat to be protected in perpetuity for plants, animals, birds, fish, and their ecosystems. The fund has helped preserve extensive habitat in the region including wintering habitat for eagles on the Skagit River, a nature reserve on Lummi Island, and a wildlife corridor on Bainbridge Island, among many other land parcels. Birds Connect Seattle has granted nearly $600,000 from the Martin Miller Fund since its inception.
