BioBlitz brings people of all ages and from all over the world together as citizen scientists to count animal and plant species
TROY, NY – Audubon International has joined the global #GivingTuesday movement taking place on Nov. 29th to support the expansion of its BioBlitz environmental program.
Audubon International is a nonprofit organization that delivers high-quality environmental education and facilitates the sustainable management of land, water, wildlife, and other natural resources around the world.
#Giving Tuesday is a day of giving that harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity. In the USA, #Giving Tuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities by giving back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
Through certification programs for park lands, golf courses, municipalities and private communities, Audubon International is able to positively impact environmental health at multiple geographic scales, including individual properties, communities, and ecoregions. AI’s approach has won numerous awards for integrating key environmental issues such as water conservation, habitat management, sustainable management practices and reducing chemical use with environmental education.
Christine Kane, Audubon International’s Executive Director, says. “We’re very excited to be a part of #GivingTuesday this year. Our programs promote wildlife habitat improvements in many locations around the world so this event provides the perfect opportunity for all of our members and friends to come together to celebrate and support environmental sustainability into the future.”
