Audubon Florida was founded in 1900 in the fight to save the Everglades’ wading birds from extinction. Today, it is a privilege to carry on the 122-year Audubon legacy by continuing to work to protect and restore the Everglades.
"Audubon has advocated for the protection and restoration of Everglades National Park for 75 years, and today, it is a privilege to celebrate the long road we’ve traveled together with agency, tribal, elected, and NGO partners," said Kelly Cox, director of Everglades policy for Audubon Florida. "Everglades National Park is a sanctuary for birds and people alike and we are proud to have been involved in the creation of the park and its continued protection," she added.
Audubon is excited to see the new Visitor Center — named for Audubon game warden Guy Bradley — come on-line and looks forward to the next 75 years of partnership with Everglades National Park. We helped celebrate this important milestone for Everglades National Park by attending the re-dedication ceremony in Flamingo on December 3.
