2019 • 3 years • Climate Solutions

 

For more than a century, the National Audubon Society has protected birds and their habitat for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biodiversity, building a legacy of science, education, awareness, and on-the-ground conservation. In 2015, Audubon released the results of a seven-year investigation that found climate change is the most immediate and significant threat to more than 50 percent of bird species in North America. Audubon's subsequent research confirms that its membership network—40 percent of whom self-identify as Republicans or Independents—are significantly more ready than the public at large to act on climate. The trust earned over its long history enables the organization to reach across the aisle for grassroots activation in a way that contributes significantly to the public discourse about climate change and leverages progress at every level and in every critical place. By framing climate change as a bird issue, Audubon personalizes and localizes the issue and engenders a sense of urgency. The award allows Audubon to activate supporters from a pool of tens of millions of American birders to help drive action and create the safe political space necessary for enactment and implementation of climate solutions.

2015 • 1 year, 4 months • Conservation & Sustainable Development

For more than a century, the National Audubon Society (Audubon) has protected birds and their habitat for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biodiversity, building a legacy on science, education, advocacy, and on-the-ground conservation. This award supports an emerging partnership between BirdLife International and Audubon to address the impacts of climate change on migratory birds, focusing on the Americas. Audubon is developing two guiding documents, including a report synthesizing the latest science on the impact of climate change on birds and an action plan to implement promising solutions. These products will lay the foundation for climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts in ten countries in the Americas.
