The Director of Conservation--a newly created senior leadership position--will lead the development and implementation of landscape-level conservation objectives in the Mid-Atlantic region for the benefit of birds and the places they need to thrive and survive. This seasoned leader will bring inspirational energy and proven execution skills to the role, leading a dynamic portfolio of conservation work in Maryland and Pennsylvania that is grounded in efforts to address the growing threats of climate change and habitat loss in the region.  They will supervise and support regional conservation staff and work in coordination with Audubon’s national and Atlantic flyway conservation teams to grow Audubon’s regional impact.    Audubon Mid-Atlantic's conservation work currently includes programs in forest and coastal habitats as well as efforts within the Delaware River Watershed through a special project that is led separately. In keeping with National Audubon Society objectives, much of our regional conservation work focuses on the deployment of natural infrastructure strategies to enhance habitats needed by birds throughout their lifecycles, build connectivity between those habitats, increase climate resiliency and mitigate carbon emissions through sequestration.   The Director will also work with regional and national staff to develop urban conservation strategies and will work collaboratively with the Director of the Delaware River Watershed program on habitat improvement and conservation projects within this watershed.  Given the geography of the region, the Director is likely to spend much of their time on Audubon Mid-Atlantic’s forest stewardship and management efforts, working to grow Audubon’s Healthy Forests Initiative. This work involves the design and implementation of programs aimed at engaging private landowners, public agencies, land trusts, commercial timber companies, and the professional forestry community in promoting sustainable forest management techniques that create habitat for forest birds and other wildlife.  The Director will also work with regional staff to develop additional forest conservation strategies for PA DCNR’s Conservation Landscapes, especially the Kittatinny Ridge—where Audubon already plays a role—and priority areas in Maryland.   The Director will collaborate with natural resource agencies (federal, state, county, and municipal), non-profit conservation organizations, and commercial entities for successful implementation of their work across the landscape in the Mid-Atlantic and the overall Atlantic Flyway. They will work closely with the executive director and other regional and national staff to build sustainable income streams, engagement efforts, and conservation science strategies, and will work with the Audubon Mid-Atlantic’s director of policy to develop and promote policy priorities that further Audubon’s regional conservation objectives.    The Director will report to the Vice President & Executive Director for Audubon Mid-Atlantic.

North Platte
South Louisiana is rich with bird life, but also faces one of the highest rates of coastal land loss in the country. Audubon is committed to advancing restoration and management strategies to benefit birds and people that depend on this landscape, and monitoring birds is core to this mission. Supervised by the Director of Conservation Science, the Avian Technician will demonstrate and gain skills in field survey methods, data collection and entry protocols, outreach and education, and have opportunities to intimately study and protect charismatic bird species. Training will be provided in field survey and data entry protocols, and the position will periodically work with other staff and partners where additional exposure and training, including with bird banding, will be provided.   In partnership with other organizations, the seasonal Avian Technician will conduct standardized point counts at three sites around New Orleans, support beach-nesting bird monitoring efforts on Grand Isle, and work with volunteers to monitor nest boxes that host Prothonotary Warblers in the Baton Rouge or Lafayette area. The position will be largely field-based, and a demonstrated knowledge of learning to identify birds by sight and sound is expected. Field surveys will also require the entry of data into digital platforms (primarily Microsoft Excel spreadsheets). Organization skills are necessary to balance the rigors and challenges of conducting field work with entering and proofing data, and to coordinate with partners (e.g., boat captains, volunteers, and other Audubon staff) to ensure that surveys are conducted in a timely and proficient manner.   The position will work approximately 32-45 hours per week, starting in early May and terminating in late July (~12 weeks). Housing and a vehicle are not provided, but all expenses associated with field work will be reimbursed. Travel to and from field sites using a personal vehicle will be reimbursed at the federal rate (currently $0.585/mile), and candidates without a personal vehicle will have the option to rent a car for traveling to and from field sites.
