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).
The Director of Policy will shape, lead, manage and implement strategies and actions to advance Audubon’s mission and conservation objectives in Audubon Florida. Reporting to the Vice President and Executive Director, s/he acts as a critical member of the senior leadership team and closely collaborates with a variety of key staff at the state, Flyway and national level. The Director is responsible for overseeing the policy team and coordinating and implementing policy efforts with staff across Audubon Florida’s programs, sanctuaries and/or centers. This includes engaging grassroots and partners in this work, proactively communicating issues and positions through earned and social media, and helping attract contributions to support this important work.
