Carol Timmis Receives Audubon Florida's 2021 Distinguished Philanthropist of the Year Award

As a longtime member of the Audubon Florida Board of Directors, Timmis has been actively involved in conservation for over 30 years.

Audubon Florida would not be able to deliver much needed conservation results for our state without the generous support of our donors. Each year, we recognize a Philanthropist of the Year, celebrating the spirit of generosity that makes this work possible.

This year, Audubon Florida recognizes Carol Timmis as our 2021 Distinguished Philanthropist.

As a longtime member and current Vice Chair of the Audubon Florida Board of Directors, Timmis has been a conservation leader for nearly 30 years. She brings sophistication and expertise honed during her finance career to bear on her conservation work, supporting Audubon advocacy and science with her own gifts, while recruiting others to the cause. Carol founded and chairs the Development Committee of Audubon Florida’s Board of Directors and is a thought leader among her peers, elevating philanthropy and fundraising in service to conservation.

Her love for Roseate Spoonbills encouraged her to help sponsor the deployment of a satellite tracker on a Roseate Spoonbill by our Everglades Science team to trace the birds’ movements. 

Carol Timmis is the 2021 Distinguished Philanthropist of the year! Thank you, Carol, and all Audubon supporters!
