The Voice of Conservation in Florida
For more than a century Audubon has encouraged people to take care of the places that make Florida special. Using science to guide our priorities and birdlife to measure ecosystem health, Audubon advocates for the protection of land, water, and wildlife. Audubon is Florida’s most influential conservation organization and conducts extensive work to protect the Everglades and coastal bird habitats. We manage sanctuaries covering thousands of acres along with two popular nature centers. Audubon promotes stewardship and appreciation of public land and water so people experience and cherish Florida’s natural beauty and wildlife.
The Burl Long Award honors Dr. Burl Long, a founding member of the Florida Natural Resources Leadership Institute (NRLI). It is an annual award given to the NRLI Fellow who best exemplifies the program’s mission of seeking inclusive, collaborative solutions to Florida’s challenging natural resource issues.
