Review for National Audubon Society Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Audubon seems more concerned with fundraising than environmental work. Selling 14 acres of oceanfront in NC for 25 million to a developer of what has been a bird snactuary? Leasing oil rights in the Gulf coast region to the highest bidder in a wildlife sanctuary? Selling land in Virginia donated by the DuPont family for a wildlife refuge to developers?
Too much focus on money and generating more without protecting the environmental assets they have now.
In Cape Hatteras NC they approve of the killing of 300 to 400 mammals each year to protect 5 to 7 plover nests on the beach and actually have a consent decree from a judge to do so. Kill the animals to save the birds makes little sense.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

North Carolina

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

disband or thouroughly reorganize with a new and specific mission statement.
