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 National Audubon Society has identified the Everglades as a national conservation priority and a centerpiece of Audubon’s hemispheric water strategy. The Greater Everglades Ecosystem supports 70 threatened and endangered species and is home to more than 8 million people. Everglades’s restoration is the world’s largest ecosystem restoration program and ensuring successful implementation of this program is one of our key priorities. Restoration is complemented by efforts to reducing nutrient pollution in the northern Everglades and into Lake Okeechobee, where Audubon is focused on protecting up to 130,000 acres of marsh habitat.
Aligned with Audubon’s overall conservation goals and strategies and in coordination with the Director of Everglades Policy, this person will oversee the continued strategic and measurable implementation of conservation goals in the Northern Everglades and Lake Okeechobee that results in the organization’s increased capacity to protect priority birds and their habitats.
