Within Audubon Nebraska, Iain Nicolson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary (Rowe) focuses on conservation of the Platte River ecosystem and the birds that rely on it, and Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center (SCP) focuses on grassland bird conservation by restoring and maintaining the tallgrass prairie ecosystem. Habitat restoration and maintenance is a critical need for a thriving bird community in both large landscapes and in small yards. In Nebraska, public and conservation lands are limited in number, so habitat managers at both Centers are actively experimenting with different management techniques and monitoring the results. These results are shared among conservation partners and with local landowners to influence habitat management beyond each Center.   Audubon Nebraska seeks to hire a one year position that will work primarily at Rowe Sanctuary, but may spend time working at Spring Creek Prairie. By the end of the year, the conservation intern will have gained experience in ecosystem restoration techniques (invasive species removal, prescribed burns, grazing), monitored habitats and species, established contacts with multiple conservation partner organizations, and conducted several education and outreach activities. This individual will also be responsible for building and nurturing partnerships in support of local, state and national conservation strategies.

Grassland birds have declined more than any other group of birds in North America. Since the vast majority of their habitat is on private land, working with ranchers is our best hope for conserving them. When managed properly, cattle create and sustain diverse and quality habitat that grassland birds need. Audubon is partnering with ranchers to implement regenerative, bird-friendly land management. By certifying ranches that meet our protocols, we empower meat consumers to support grassland bird conservation with their purchases. And, we’re providing an economic incentive for ranchers to maximize bird habitat across millions of acres. Learn more at audubon.org/ranching.   Audubon’s Conservation Ranching Initiative is built upon a certification consistent with its values and brand—habitat management protocols, no feedlots, restrictions on use of therapeutics and supplemental feeding, animal welfare, limited pesticide and herbicide use—that shapes the kind of market channels the Initiative can thrive and scale in.  Building upon the surging demand for values oriented local and regional food products, the ACR Initiative seeks to increase demand by marketing its Green Seal of certification to consumers in regional markets and in support of regional for-profit market partners.    The Audubon Conservation Ranching (ACR) Marketing Manager position is focused on developing strategies and implementing tactics that increase the market demand for products from Audubon-certified ranches. Reporting to the ACR Strategy Lead, the position will be part of a growing team of marketing professionals focused on growing market demand, and grassland conservation outcomes, nationwide.  As such, they will also be connected to the ACR leadership team, field staff across the Audubon network, and the national marketing and communications team.

Across New York’s coastlines, rising sea levels, stronger storms, and human development are squeezing priority coastal habitats. Human disturbance also threatens the reproductive success of beach-nesting birds that depend on our coast to survive. Audubon is building resilient, healthy coastal ecosystems to support priority birds and protect our coastal communities.   Long Island supports almost half of the New York bird species found on Audubon’s WatchList and considered continentally at risk as well as 20% of the species that are considered vulnerable in New York.  Long Island Sound was one of the first estuaries to be designated by Congress as an Estuary of National Significance and it contributes $5.5 billion annually to the region's economy and, with more than 28 million people living with within 50 miles of its shores, it impacts more Americans than any other estuary in the country. Audubon’s Coast Program on Long Island strives to protect and improve coastal ecosystems for the benefit of birds and people. Resilient, healthy coastal ecosystems not only benefit birds, they also serve as the first line of defense for coastal communities facing stronger storms, more frequent flooding, and sea-level rise.   The Program Associate - Coasts, is part of the conservation team and is instrumental in advancing Audubon’s bird conservation efforts on Long Island. The position focuses on conservation of coastal birds and their habitats through Audubon’s coastal resilience and stewardship strategies. Primary activities include conservation, stewardship, and restoration to benefit priority coastal birds and their habitats, with an emphasis on shorebirds and other beach-nesting birds. The position also assists with outreach, advocacy, and fundraising efforts to reduce threats to priority bird species and protect critical coastal habitats.   The position is based at the Theodore Roosevelt Audubon Center and Sanctuary, Oyster Bay, NY, and will report to the Director of Conservation, who is stationed in Ithaca, NY.    **Please Note: Only applicants who submit a cover letter will be considered for candidacy.

South Louisiana is a popular destination for tourists, fishermen, and beachgoers. Birds including Least Terns, Wilson's Plovers, and Common Nighthawks nest on these beaches, creating the potential for disturbance by recreational users of private and public lands.   In partnership with other organizations, the Coastal Bird Technician will help buffer beach-nesting bird sites against the threats of human disturbance, and work with community members to provide protection efforts and offer outreach and education opportunities to visitors (contingent on the status of the Covid-19 pandemic). The program will have a strong bird-monitoring component, which will involve tracking nests, chicks, and their fates, to understand the impacts of human disturbance, predation, and other environmental stresses on breeding productivity.   Supervised by the Coastal Stewardship Manager, the Coastal Bird Technician will demonstrate and gain skills in outreach and education (virtual and/or in-person), as well as have opportunities to intimately monitor and protect charismatic beach-nesting bird species as part of an ongoing research project.   We will hire one or two full-time seasonal positions based in Grand Isle and one or two full-time seasonal positions based in Cameron Parish. The position will start in 1 April and terminate in early August (~20 weeks).

Responsible for assisting with Audubon South Carolina’s robust volunteer program that helps protect birds and the places they need along the state’s coastline, the Seasonal Shorebird Steward Coordinator’s main duties will include recruiting, training and coordinating volunteers; monitoring and collecting data at coastal bird nesting and migratory stopover sites; and interacting with the public to prevent disturbance to resting and nesting coastal birds.   Audubon’s Shorebird Stewards are trained volunteers that serve as the front line of support for nesting and migratory shorebirds that rely on undisturbed beaches to hatch their young in the summer and rest on the beach during spring migrations. Stewards educate beachgoers and collect important data on human and coastal bird beach use.   Reporting to the Coastal Program Associate, the Seasonal Shorebird Steward Coordinator position is an exciting opportunity to jumpstart or enrich a career in conservation by working to protect coastal birds and their habitats while developing skills needed for a successful career in the environmental and scientific fields. The Coastal Program Associate and entire Audubon South Carolina team will work closely with the Seasonal Shorebird Steward Coordinator to ensure a meaningful, successful work experience.   The approximate start and end date for this full-time, seasonal position is February 1, 2021 to September 30, depending on spring migration and summer nesting season. Flexible start dates will be considered for enthusiastic candidates with experience and strong interest. Ocean boating experience is helpful but not required.   Audubon South Carolina is committed to equitable, resilient, and healthy communities in which every member benefits from the joy and value of nature.

Audubon's Seabird Restoration Program manages seven island research stations off the coast of Maine that support breeding colonies of Arctic, Common, Roseate, and Least Terns, Atlantic Puffins, Black Guillemots, Razorbills, Laughing Gulls, Common Eiders, Leach’s Storm-Petrels, and wading birds (study species vary by island). Work includes, but is not limited to: managing multiple concurrent seabird research projects; training and supervising Research Assistants, interns, and volunteers; creating daily work schedules; monitoring seabird populations, productivity, and growth; conducting seabird diet studies; banding and resighting birds; removing invasive vegetation; educating island visitors; conducting predator management; data entry and proofing; preparing a season report; camp maintenance; and coordinating logistics with mainland staff. Primitive camping and working on offshore islands are required. At each island, a cabin or wall tent serves as the base of field operations, and field team members sleep in their own tents. Island field stations have limited electricity (solar panels power research needs), propane stoves, composting toilets, and no running water (rainwater is collected for washing; drinking water is brought from the mainland).  Communications with the mainland are via cell or VOIP phone, depending on location, with VHF radios as back-up.  Island field teams consist of 2 to 5 people (depending on island and time of year) and are led by the Island Supervisor. All field team members participate in seabird research and camp maintenance duties. For the welfare of the birds, field work is highly weather-dependent. The work week may stretch across seven days. Days can be long and weekend work may be required. Island work schedule and daily duties are determined by the Island Supervisor, following established work plans and procedures.  Daily schedules will vary based on weather (no entry into the seabird colony is permitted during inclement weather to protect the nesting terns) and time of the nesting season (when tern chicks are fully feathered, entry into the colony is less restrictive). Daily activities may include the following: island-wide morning bird count at 0600 hours; collection of weather data three times per day; one to two 3-hour “stints” in the observation blinds for data collection; seabird trapping and banding; productivity monitoring; trail maintenance; invasive plant removal; predator control; computer data entry; daily journal log entries; and maintenance of camp facilities.   Field teams will spend the entire field season living on island.  Teams working on inshore islands (3 of the 7 islands) may have the ability to go ashore for food and supplies for the field station, approximately every 3 weeks. Inshore Island Supervisors must possess a valid driver’s license, and a personal vehicle is desirable.  On offshore islands, food and supplies will be delivered approximately every 3 weeks. Supervisors are responsible for submitting a grocery/supply list to mainland staff prior to scheduled deliveries. Food and worker’s compensation insurance are provided. Island Supervisors must provide their own binoculars, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and 2-person tent.   There are 7 positions available positions that start between May 1 and May 25 and end between August 21 and September 7, depending on site.   For further information on the Seabird Restoration Program and research islands, visit Project Puffin   To apply submit cover letter with the resume.

A lack of understanding of the temporal and spatial distribution of the Black Rail (Laterallus jamaicensis) in Louisiana has resulted in an inability to(1)study basic aspects of the species’ biology in this part of the range and(2) implement effective conservation measures to benefit this species. Without knowing when and where the Black Rail occurs in the state, restoration and management efforts will be unable to account for the habitat needs of this rare and declining species. This project seeks to build upon three years of research to locate Black Rails in coastal Louisiana, describe important habitat on which they depend, and understand their responses to fire management. Supervised by the Director of Bird Conservation, the Marshbird Biological Assistant will work closely with Audubon Louisiana’s Marshbird Biologist to conduct point-count and drag-line surveys. By assisting with this project, the Marshbird Biological Assistant will gain experience and learn from experts in the field of conservation and avian ecology, while gaining practical skills in ornithological research, monitoring techniques, and volunteer coordination.   This position is expected to work 40 hours per week for five months between February and June 2021. Please submit a cover letter and resume with your application by January 22nd, 2021.
