As part of our mission to promote stewardship of ecosystems in Kansas and the heartland, AOK works to protect what is left of our heritage prairie and all other habitat in our region. When our state and government agencies threaten to undermine the Endangered Species Act and attempt to push policies through that are detrimental to preserving these areas- AOK takes action.
To fulfill this mission, Audubon of Kansas:
- Encourages legislation that promotes stewardship of ecosystems in the Central Great Plains including conservation of threatened or endangered species, critical habitat, and important natural resources
- Provides position statements to legislators on specific senate bills and testifies at the state level whenever bills are introduced that threaten to undermine conservation
- Sends out prompt legislative alerts and call-to-action notices about current legislative activity relevant to wildlife to our members, supporters, and the general public to inform them about bills that pose as potential threats to wildlife, urging our wildlife partners to voice their perspective
- Participates in important state and local agency meetings to encourage conservation of wildlife in resource planning and development
To receive our legislative updates via email please contact us. To learn more about our specific advocacy efforts and read position statements see our “News” page and check out “Prairie Wings” magazine.
We need your help.

We greatly appreciate any support you can provide.
