For more than a century, Audubon has championed the protection of birds and their habitat.  Audubon’s mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats, for the benefit of humanity and the Earth’s biological diversity.  With nearly 700 staff, 22 state programs, 463 local chapters, 41 centers and sanctuaries, and close to half a million members throughout the United States, Audubon achieves its mission by engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education, and on-the-ground conservation action.

 

In the spring of 2016, Audubon launched a new strategic plan to renew the organization’s focus on the biggest and most important opportunities for addressing critical threats to birds and their habitat.  At the core of this plan is a focus on flyways: each year, more than 10 billion birds use major flyways to travel up and down the continent and to points beyond.  Underneath these flyways are migratory rest stops and the homes for non-migratory birds that are critical to birds’ survival.  By mobilizing and aligning Audubon’s unparalleled network of chapters, centers, state programs, and Important Bird Area (IBA) programs to focus on the four major migratory flyways in the Americas (Atlantic, Mississippi, Central, and Pacific), 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.  As part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in more than 100 countries working to protect a network of IBAs around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level.

 

Our 2016 strategic plan builds on the strong foundation established by our 2011 plan. It creates a roadmap for the next five years, guided by two ideas:  By focusing on the needs of bird species, the scale and ambition of our conservation work can match the complexity of 21st century demands; and to do so, Audubon needs to become the most effective conservation network in America.  We are setting our sights on large-scale conservation goals and taking the needed steps to ensure that Audubon has the strong partnerships and capacity to achieve them. We will focus on five cross-cutting conservation strategies including climate, coasts, working lands, water, and bird friendly communities. We are building durable public will for conservation by broadening and deepening our support base, with a clear-eyed understanding of the benefits of diversity. We are investing in the skills and capacity of our unparalleled distributed network. Audubon is an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).

The silver lining in this tragic event in the Gulf is that the Gulf States and their unique and valuable coastal resources and the challenges that face them are receiving needed national attention and billions of dollars that will help to restore these natural resources. Audubon’s Gulf staff, national science and policy staff, and Gulf chapters working to restore these natural resources and working hard to ensure these funds are used efficiently and effectively to benefit birds and coastal resilience.

As one of Audubon’s leading state programs with a leadership role in the Atlantic Flyway, an annual budget of over $3 million and a staff of 35, Audubon New York (ANY) is poised to fulfill significant elements of National Audubon Society’s new strategic plan to conserve birds and habitats at scale. The work of ANY is grounded in science, education, policy, and on-the-ground conservation. We have 50,000 members, twenty-seven Chapters, and seven Audubon Centers and Sanctuaries in New York.

Audubon New York works with private landowners and public land stewards in the Eastern Forest of the Adirondacks and Catskills to undertake forest management practices to enhance the habitat for song birds. The Long Island Bird Conservation Program includes monitoring and protecting shorebird beach nesting sites on Long Island, and the groundbreaking “Be A Good Egg” program informs beach-goers about shorebird priority species and their habitat with the involvement of school children. Audubon New York recruits farmers and other grassland owners to participate in conservation and habitat enhancement management programs to reverse the decline of grassland and shrubland bird species, including the bobolink. The state program also teaches the next generation of environmental stewards throughout the State through the highly successful For the Birds! program. Audubon New York leads a coalition of labor, business, and environmental organizations in advocating for funding and sound public policy, and annually celebrates the significant contribution of women to creating a healthier and more protected environment for people and birds. We work from backyards to the halls of government. We are bold, passionate, audacious, and ambitious in our goals to conserve and restore natural ecosystems for birds and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.

Founded in 1905, the National Audubon Society is one of the most venerable conservation organizations in the world. Audubon follows birds to ecosystems, conserving them for wildlife, for people, and for the earth’s biological diversity. Today, Audubon enjoys a widely respected centrist brand, a powerful legacy of conservation success, deep loyalty among its supporters, and the clarity that springs from working for the benefit of birds and the places they need to survive and thrive.

 

Audubon works to save birds through conservation and advocacy firmly grounded in science. As leaders in applied bird conservation science, Audubon engages in research and analysis to support the development of its programs, to build its authority as a science-led thought leader, and to inform and evaluate the work of Audubon and its partners.

With a membership base that spans the political spectrum – 52% are progressive, 48% moderate to conservative – Audubon is uniquely positioned to make progress in red, blue, and purple states and communities and with federal agencies looking for non-ideological partners at this unprecedented political moment.

Audubon’s powerful distributed network has an unparalleled reach. No other conservation organization matches the size, reach, scale, influence, diversity, and creative energy of its chapters, nature centers, staff, volunteer leaders, and US and international partners. The network has the knowledge and credibility to care for birds, and the places they need, in communities across the country – and it unites to tackle big challenges facing birds that cannot be solved by any single part of the network alone.

One Audubon
Seven years ago, Audubon’s Board charged their new CEO, David Yarnold, with a mission to dramatically change the organization’s approach to conservation, and the organization embarked on the kind of major turnaround that legacy nonprofits generally do not attempt. The first step was to change the way Audubon approached conservation, and the organization’s One Audubon strategy used the flyways traveled by migratory birds as the inspiration for its new organizational alignment. By connecting the work of the Audubon network – chapters, centers, national and state staff, volunteers, US and International partners, and other supporters – along each of the flyways of the Americas, Audubon weaved a seamless web of conservation for birds and other migratory and non-migratory species. By working toward common flyway conservation goals, Audubon can have greater impact, and by coordinating resources and expertise, it can dramatically increase its efficiency across the network.

Today Audubon has an all new executive leadership team in place – many from the for-profit sector – and is putting more than $100 million annually to work on conservation (compared with $73 million just five years ago). This new robust Audubon is a strategic, responsive, integrated organization that can tap people’s passion for bird-centered conservation and translate it into action.

2020 Strategic Plan
With a new shared vision in place, Audubon’s new strategic plan focuses on bringing America’s largest and most effective conservation network to bear on five highly scalable strategic priorities that can make the greatest difference for the future of birds: Coasts; Working Lands; Water; Climate; and Bird-Friendly Communities. These priorities cover the breadth of landscapes that birds need to thrive, including shorelines, lakes, bird-friendly cities, and habitat strongholds that will provide shelter to birds as the climate changes and their old homes disappear. In addition, Audubon is investing in innovative communication strategies to bring birds and nature to a new generation of diverse potential activists and supporters.

Governance and Staff
The National Audubon Society is a nonprofit organization based in New York City. Audubon has 23 state offices and 41 nature centers (the largest network of nature centers owned by a major conservation NGO), and a staff of 660, including 100 in New York and 25 in Washington, DC. Audubon’s network includes 463 affiliated Chapters, each an independent 501(c)(3) organization, aligned to Audubon’s 2020 strategy and engaged in driving Audubon’s community-based conservation work.

Over the past eight years, Audubon has diversified the composition of its Board to reflect the One Audubon vision, and has elevated the overall caliber of its Board members and their ability to contribute to the organization. Audubon’s Board seats are now some of the most coveted in US conservation and further development is anticipated as the organization continues to grow in scale and ambition. Since the onset of One Audubon, Board giving has increased five-fold and continues to increase.

Diversity and Inclusion
Achieving ambitious conservation goals requires authentic representation of all the communities in which Audubon works and, as such, diversity and inclusion are core values and key strategic imperatives for the organization. This is an essential part of Audubon’s culture and values, and to get there, Audubon will be intentional about becoming more diverse and implement an approach that will yield measurable results.

Founded in 1905, the National Audubon Society is one of the most venerable conservation organizations in the world. Audubon follows birds to ecosystems, conserving them for wildlife, for people, and for the earth’s biological diversity. Today, Audubon enjoys a widely respected centrist brand, a powerful legacy of conservation success, deep loyalty among its supporters, and the clarity that springs from working for the benefit of birds and the places they need to survive and thrive.


Audubon works to save birds through conservation and advocacy firmly grounded in science. As leaders in applied bird conservation science, Audubon engages in research and analysis to support the development of its programs, to build its authority as a science-led thought leader, and to inform and evaluate the work of Audubon and its partners.


Audubon’s powerful distributed network has an unparalleled reach. No other conservation organization matches the size, reach, scale, influence, diversity, and creative energy of its chapters, nature centers, staff, volunteer leaders, and US and international partners. At its best, the network has the knowledge and credibility to care for birds, and the places they need, in communities across the country - and it unites to tackle big challenges facing birds that cannot be solved by any single part of the network alone.


By connecting the work of the Audubon network - 463 Chapters, 41 nature centers and sanctuaries, 22 state offices, more than 650 staff members, 1 million members and volunteers, and U.S. and international partners - along each of the four major migratory flyways of the Americas, Audubon weaves a seamless web of conservation for birds and other migratory and non-migratory species. By working toward common flyway conservation goals, Audubon is having greater impact, and by coordinating resources, physical assets and expertise, it is dramatically increasing its efficiency across the network to address the most pressing conservation issues of our time.


Audubon is focused on five cross-cutting conservation strategies--climate, coasts, working lands, water, and bird friendly communities. The organization has built a scientific foundation for each of its strategies, established clear goals and is mobilizing its powerful network to achieve conservation wins at scale. Audubon also has a clear-eyed focus on increasing diversity and promoting inclusion. Audubon is putting more than $100 million annually to work on conservation (compared with $73 million just five years ago). This new robust Audubon is a strategic, pragmatic, responsive, integrated organization that can tap people’s passion for bird-centered conservation and translate it into action.

 

ABOUT AUDUBON CALIFORNIA

 

Audubon’s presence in California dates back to the earliest days of the conservation movement. Through conservation, advocacy, community involvement, and with the partnership of the 49 California chapters, Audubon California has had a major impact on conservation and is regarded as a leader in conservation throughout the Golden State. Audubon California’s network is one of the organization’s most important and unique strengths, with 350,000 members and supporters statewide. The program has an annual budget of $8.0 million, a staff of 51 across the state, and over 17,000 acres under land management.


In 2014, Audubon California approved a five-year business plan with measurable outcomes to protect birds in California. One of those goals is to increase the number of voices raised to ensure a future for California birds to thrive – particularly 35 focal species. The organization has a vision to mobilize 500,000 Californians in order to win the most important policy victories for birds and secure bird-friendly management of 500,000 acres of the most important habitats.


Audubon California’s recent policy wins -- made possible by a combination of science, policy leadership, strong communications and member advocacy -- include a new ruling from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to proactively protect several types of forage fish in 280,000 square miles of ocean, providing critical foraging habitat for albatrosses, shearwaters, and other seabirds, and successfully passing legislation requiring the use of non-lead ammunition for hunting in California by 2019.


In 2016, Audubon California was an important partner in a coalition that secured $500 million to support climate adaptation projects in the San Francisco Bay. Audubon California works in the Central Valley by providing technical assistance to private landowners and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Refuge system to provide critical habitat for birds. The organization’s work on water issues across the State is growing and it is now leading the effort to restore the Salton Sea as part of a larger Colorado River restoration effort.

Audubon has a rich history in Nebraska with premier international birding destinations like the Ian Nicolson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2014, to the outstanding restoration and conservation work that has been completed on the Platte River. Audubon Nebraska currently operates two nature centers (Ian Nicolson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary and Spring Creek Prairie) in Nebraska and delivers conservation programs in four primary areas of focus – Water, Grasslands, Climate, and Bird Friendly Communities.

 

In the spring of 2016, Audubon adopted a new strategic plan to renew the organization’s focus on the biggest and most important opportunities for addressing critical threats to birds and their habitat throughout the Western Hemisphere. This plan reaffirms Audubon’s commitment to organizing our conservation work by migratory flyways: each year, more than 10 billion birds use four major flyways to travel up and down the continent and to points beyond. Underneath these flyways are migratory rest stops and the homes for non-migratory birds that are critical to birds’ survival. By mobilizing and aligning Audubon’s unparalleled network of chapters, centers, state programs, and Important Bird Area (IBA) programs to focus on the four major migratory flyways in the Americas (Atlantic, Mississippi, Central, and Pacific), 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.

 

As part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in more than 100 countries working to protect a network of IBAs around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. Our 2016 strategic plan builds on the strong foundation established by our 2011 plan. It creates a roadmap for the next five years, guided by two ideas: by focusing on the needs of bird species, the scale and ambition of our conservation work can match the complexity of 21st century demands; and to do so, Audubon needs to become the most effective conservation network in America. We are setting our sights on large-scale conservation goals and taking the needed steps to ensure that Audubon has the authority and capacity to achieve them. We will focus on five cross-cutting conservation strategies including climate, coasts, working lands, water, and bird friendly communities. We will build durable public will for conservation by broadening and deepening our support base, with a clear-eyed focus on diversity. We will invest in the skills and capacity of our unparalleled distributed network. We will continue to refine our priorities and evolve our organizational structure in order to meet our ambitious goals.

In the spring of 2016, the National Audubon Society adopted a new strategic plan to renew the organization’s focus on addressing critical threats to birds and their habitat throughout the Western Hemisphere. This plan reaffirms Audubon’s commitment to organizing its conservation work along fours migratory flyways – the Atlantic, Mississippi, Central and Pacific. Each spring and fall, billions of migratory birds follow the flyways of the Americas from wintering to breeding grounds and back again. By protecting the web of life that represents the Americas’ richest veins of biodiversity, Audubon safeguards this natural heritage for future generations. To accomplish this, Audubon connects its powerful network—463 Chapters, 41 nature centers and sanctuaries, 22 state offices, more than 650 state and national staff members, 1 million members and volunteers, and U.S. and international partners—along each of the flyways, to weave a seamless web of conservation across the hemisphere.

 

Audubon’s 2016 strategic plan creates a roadmap for the next five years, guided by two ideas: by focusing on the needs of bird species, the scale and ambition of its conservation work can match the complexity of 21st century demands; and to do so, Audubon will become the most effective conservation network in America.

Audubon seeks to build a durable public will for conservation by broadening and deepening its support base, with a focus on increasing diversity and promoting inclusion.

 

Established in 1996, Audubon New York was a pioneer in launching the Audubon Important Bird Area (IBA) program. IBA has identified 136 IBAs, comprising more than 3.5 million acres of land and water habitat, which provides essential habitats for bird populations. The cornerstone of all Audubon New York’s conservation efforts is science. Bird surveying, species assessment, grassland bird research, forest biodiversity research, and public outreach and education programs are the key elements driving its conservation priorities within New York State. Audubon New York's science staff is headquartered at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, which allows them to work closely with leading ornithologists and conservationists.

 

Audubon New York works with partners across the state on sustainable development, clean energy, and other environmental issues that are important to the quality of life for all New Yorkers. Audubon New York continues to be a leader on Long Island Sound, actively working to ensure the protection of its coasts, enlisting a growing number of volunteers to help reduce disturbances to birds and steward nesting habitat and advocating for continued funding of the Long Island Sound Restoration and Stewardship Act.

 

On private lands, Audubon is working to educate forest owners, foresters, loggers and builders about preferred stewardship practices favorable to birds and other wildlife. And we are partnering with landowners, public land managers, businesses, state and federal agencies, Audubon chapters, and local partners across the state to restore forest, grassland, and shrubland habitat.

 

Audubon Centers are facilities where people can become engaged in meaningful interactions with local environment. The New York Centers Network includes seven Centers and staffed sanctuaries operated by Audubon New York, and two Centers operated by Audubon Chapters. Audubon New York’s Centers stretch from Long Island to Buffalo. Education is an important component of Audubon’s effectiveness in creating lasting changes to protect the natural world and its Centers provide educational experiences to people of all ages and backgrounds. Additionally, the innovative For The Birds! program provides over 1,000 underserved schoolchildren in New York City Schools, and has now expanded to other parts of the state including Long Island.
