New Jersey Audubon (NJA) is a privately supported, 501(c)(3) non-profit, statewide membership organization with nearly 18,000 members. In carrying out its mission, NJA serves the more than 8.9 million state residents as well as millions of visitors who appreciate our ecological treasures. Founded in 1897 and one of the oldest Audubon societies, NJA is independent of the National Audubon Society. Its mission is to connect people with nature and preserve the nature of today for the people of tomorrow. NJA carries out its mission through conservation, stewardship, education, and research.
The conservation and advocacy initiatives described in the proposal will be carried out by the NJA's Government Relations Unit, which includes Vice President for Government Relations Kelly Mooij and Conservation Advocate Megan Tinsley. Primary responsibility for the deliverables related to this grant will be performed by Ms. Mooij and Ms. Tinsley who will work in collaboration with Vice President for Stewardship John Cecil, Vice President for Education Dale Rosselet, and other NJA staff as necessary. Eric Stiles, CEO and President of NJA, will provide guidance and play an advisory role in this project.
