In Texas, now more than ever, there is a growing awareness of environmental issues and consequences. Eighty-five (85) percent of Texans agree conservation of Texas’ natural areas is a core Lone Star value, “unless we protect Texas’ natural areas, we will lose the very things that makes Texas a special place in which to live.” In this same study, 81% of Texans feel as Texas’ population grows and becomes a more urban state, there is an increased need for recreation lands and conservation programs (Hill Research Consultants, Texas Statewide Voter Opinion Survey, January 2013).

In this era of environmental awareness, it is vital for businesses to demonstrate a commitment to conservation. According to the Cone Consumer Environmental Survey (2009), “…consumers continue to be interested in the environment and mindful of corporate efforts….”

The Cone/Roper Cause Related Trends Report recommends businesses enhance their environmental reputation by supporting conservation organizations through funding projects, making donations, and becoming corporate members.

Travis Audubon invites you to join its Birds & Business Partnership as a simple first step in helping conserve natural resources for Texas’ future.
