Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of nearly 500 local chapters, 23 state offices, 41 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country. Audubon is a federal contractor and an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).
Reporting to the Vice President of the Gulf Coast and Mississippi Flyway, the Center Director at Wildcat Glades will have four core functions: manage all Wildcat Glades operations; play a significant and proactive role in fundraising for Wildcat Glade’s facilities and operations as well as other statewide initiatives; and participate as an active and productive participant in Audubon’s activities in Missouri as well as Mississippi Flyway senior management team convened by the Vice President of the Gulf Coast and Mississippi Flyway.
The Center Director, therefore, plays an important role in carrying out the mission of Audubon’s Mississippi Flyway and the National Audubon Society. The program to be developed in conjunction with relevant stakeholders will include elements of all Audubon’s core approaches to conservation – education, science, public policy, and direct habitat management.
