Hundreds of conservation leaders and staff gathered at the 2016 Audubon Assembly to set Audubon Florida’s 2017 Conservation Action Agenda. Twelve resolutions – seven regional and five statewide – provide guidance on priority issues and conservation efforts. The agenda provides members, chapter leaders, directors, staff, and the public with summary statements of our policy and conservation positions. The 2017 Conservation Action Agenda is believed to be the only statewide conservation agenda that uses an open process to set its policy agenda with all stakeholders invited to participate. Regional priorities unite Audubon Florida chapters in seven regions. State priority issues integrate with National Audubon Society’s strategic plan.
The 2017 Conservation Action Agenda centers on these themes:
- Everglades Ecosystem,
- Climate Change,
- Water for the Environment,
- Coastal Conservation, and
- Important Bird Areas and Waterways
