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. The National Audubon Society is a federal contractor and an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE). We are committed to a policy of nondiscrimination, inclusion, and equal opportunity and actively seek a diverse pool of candidates in this search.
Audubon’s grassroots – our chapter members, online advocates, and community activists – are the key to our ability to influence decision makers on the biggest conservation challenges of today. Audubon’s Conservation Organizer will strengthen and broaden our political power by coordinating our climate advocacy work in the region, both growing and engaging our grassroots network. We are looking for an energetic, adaptable, relationship-oriented, and results-driven team player who effectively engages volunteers, partners and nontraditional allies to achieve climate solutions.
