The National Audubon Society is hiring a
The National Audubon Society is a nonprofit conservation organization that protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. We work throughout the Americas using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation. Audubon’s state, regional, national, and international programs, nature centers, and chapters have an unparalleled wingspan that reaches millions of people each year to inform, inspire, and unite diverse communities in conservation action. As a sentinel species, we recognize that the fate of birds is inextricably tied to the fate of us all.
Audubon has more than 700 staff working across the United States and seven countries in 17 state and regional offices, 41 nature centers, and 23 wildlife sanctuaries. Together as one Audubon, we aspire to alter the course of climate change and habitat loss, leading to healthier bird populations and reversing current trends in biodiversity loss.
Audubon is committed to a culture of workplace excellence, where our talented and diverse staff are deeply engaged, with a strong sense of belonging. The birds Audubon pledges to protect differ in color, size, behavior, geographical preference, and countless other ways. By honoring and celebrating the equally remarkable diversity of the human species, Audubon will bring new creativity, effectiveness, and leadership to our work throughout the hemisphere.
Audubon’s Seabird Institute is one of four pillars of National Audubon Society’s Coasts strategy. The program combines conservation science as well as education and outreach with the advocacy might of Audubon’s network to protect seabirds and the places they need. The Seabird Institute engages hundreds of visitors through its work at the Hog Island Audubon Camp.
As there is no regular boat transportation service to and from Hog Island and the mainland, the Naturalist is required to live in housing on Hog Island in order to perform the functions of this position. Audubon will provide the Naturalist with a private room with shared bathroom. Meals are provided on Hog Island when the kitchen is in operation. The work schedule is 40 hours per week, and the day revolves around camp programming on a six-day/ five-night program schedule that includes early morning bird walks, day trips and evening lectures. Weekend work is required. Some weeks will not include a full schedule and full hours may not be expected all weeks. Work at other Seabird Institute facilities and programs is possible during times when camp is not in session.
