***National Audubon Society Job Announcement***
From: "Lora WONDOLOWSKI"<lwondolowski@audubon.org>

Position: Grassroots Organizer, Wildlife Refuge and Forest Campaigns

Background:

Founded in 1905, the National Audubon Society is one of the oldest,
largest, and most respected environmental organizations in the country. We
are named after John James Audubon (1785-1851), famed naturalist, explorer,
and wildlife artist. The mission of the National Audubon Society 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. We have over 550,000 members, organized into 518 chapters
throughout the Americas. Our grassroots activists are among the best and
most respected of any environmental organization.
The Forest and Wildlife Refuge Campaigns are core campaigns of the National
Audubon Society.  The Wildlife Refuge Campaign is working to build an
active constituency of citizens who will speak out on behalf of the
National Wildlife Refuge System and work toward its stewardship and
protection for birds and other wildlife.  The Audubon Refuge Keepers (ARK)
Program of the campaign coordinates a national network of local citizen
groups that work with refuges on on-the-ground projects.  Through the
Bringing Home Alaska Program, the Campaign is also reaching out to
concerned citizens in the lower 49 states to get them involved in the fight
to protect Alaska's 16 refuges.

Audubon's Forest Habitat Campaign seeks to conserve and restore America's
forest ecosystems and the habitat they provide to birds and wildlife, for
their inherent value and for the benefit of current and future generations.
We use energetic grassroots activism supported by sound science and policy
in our pursuit of this goal.  The Forest Campaign addresses a wide range of
issues across the country. Forest Campaign goals include preserving
ancient, virgin, and roadless forests; restricting clearcutting; ending
logging subsidies; promoting forest restoration; ensuring public
participation opportunities in public land management; and assisting in
campaigns to preserve state and local forests.
