Organization Description

In 1986, we revived one of the oldest Audubon societies in the U.S., the Audubon Society of New York State (ASNY). ASNY developed programs focused on promoting biodiversity, watershed protection and sustainable development. As those programs quickly spread beyond New York State, ASNY adopted the name Audubon International (AI) to better describe its geographic service area. These programs provide technical assistance and education in environmental stewardship for land and resource managers on public and private lands, including programs for schools & colleges, golf courses, parks, cemeteries, and other businesses, and assistance in sustainable development. They now include about 2,500 members in 49 states and 34 countries, covering over half a million acres.

The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program is an education and certification program that helps organizations and businesses protect our environment while enhancing their bottom line. The "plan-do- check-act" approach of the program offers information and guidance to implement an environmental management plan that improves efficiency, conserves resources, and promotes conservation efforts. Audubon International awards certification to publicly recognize and reward the environmental achievements and leadership of program members.

The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf is an award winning education and certification program that helps golf courses protect our environment and preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf. By helping people enhance the valuable natural areas and wildlife habitats that golf courses provide, improve efficiency, and minimize potentially harmful impacts of golf course operations, the program serves an important environmental role worldwide. Audubon International has developed Standard Environmental Management Practices that are generally applicable to all golf courses. These standards form the basis for ACSP for Golf certification guidelines.

The Signature and Classic Sanctuary Programs are an environmental education and conservation assistance program designed to help landowners and managers follow comprehensive sustainable resource management principles when developing and renovating properties. By working closely with planners, architects, managers, and key stakeholders, these programs help landowners and developers design for the environment so that both economic and environmental objectives are achieved and sustained in the long-term.

The Green Lodging & Green Hospitality Programs provide third-party verification that hospitality facilities (with and without lodging) meet environmental best practice standards and demonstrate a strong commitment to water quality, water conservation, waste minimization, resource conservation, and energy efficiency. Through a comprehensive and credible method for assessing the extent of the environmental measures undertaken, participating facilities can reduce environment-related costs and gain a marketing advantage.

The Sustainable Communities Program is an international, science-based, third-party certification program that guides communities through a customized journey to become healthy and vibrant places in which to live, work, and play. That vision is founded in the three pillars of sustainability: a healthy local environment, quality of life for citizens, and economic vitality. The program is tailored to your community to ensure that its specific needs, priorities, resources, and challenges are addressed.

In the last 20 years, monarchs have declined by 90%. Audubon International & the Environmental Defense Fund have teamed up to partner with North America’s golf courses to reverse the decline. We are working to establish essential habitat for butterflies, increase awareness of conservation challenges and provide technical support for projects on-the-ground.
Golf courses represent a wonderful opportunity to plant milkweed and other wildflowers to provide everything monarchs need to survive. The Monarchs In The Rough initiative will guide land managers through pesticide reduction, site preparation, planting and long term maintenance of habitat for pollinators. Our goal is to create at least 1 acre of new vegetation installed specifically to bolster monarch numbers on every golf course. The program is open to ANY golf course in Canada, Mexico or the United States.

The Raptor Relocation Network is a partnership between Audubon International and the United Airlines Eco-Skies program to reduce bird strikes at airports by connecting Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program member golf courses with airport wildlife managers who are trapping and relocating raptors. The program is designed to protect raptors – including hawks, ospreys and owls – by relocating the birds-of-prey to safer, more suitable habitat on golf courses within the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program.

Golf courses are an ideal and under-recognized habitat for raptors due to the abundance of high vantage perches and long, clear views along and across fairways, excellent nesting opportunities, wide variety of habitats, and limited interaction with humans. ACSP courses are being managed with wildlife habitat in mind, and have the potential to be designated as Official Release Sites for the Raptor Relocation Network.
