Louis Bacon Receives Audubon Medal For Conservation, Environmental Work

NEW YORK, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Louis Bacon, an environmental philanthropist and avid outdoor sportsman, who has advocated for more than twenty years for conservation and protection of natural resources in the United States and abroad, last night received the Audubon Medal at the National Audubon Society Gala Dinner in New York. The National Audubon Society's prestigious award recognizes outstanding conservation achievements. Mr. Bacon is only the 52nd person in the National Audubon Society's 108-year history to receive the honor.

"It is a wonderful honor to receive the Audubon Medal from the National Audubon Society, which for more than a century has fought tirelessly to protect and preserve our natural resources and environment for future generations," Mr. Bacon said. "Much like the conservationists who previously have received the Audubon Medal, including Stewart Udall, Rachel Carson and Ted Turner, I realize that this recognition cannot be a cause to rest, but a spur to continue our work. To protect natural habitat forever is a privilege I have been lucky to take part in, a privilege unlike any other."

"My favorite memories growing up in North Carolina were hunting and fishing with my father and brothers. There, I developed a deep appreciation for protecting land and waterways. There, I learned outdoorsmanship," Mr. Bacon added. "My namesake, Louis T. Moore, believed strongly in conservation. From him, I learned how important it was to protect and preserve those physical things that truly defined a community –– however tough the fight. I believe I inherited my passion, much as we inherit this land, from the generations of good stewards who came before me. As a nation, we owe a great deal to the National Audubon Society, one of our most distinguished and important environmental organizations, and all those who work to protect America's open land and waterways."

In awarding Mr. Bacon this Medal, the National Audubon Society recognized his decades of support for a multitude of environmental organizations that work to conserve land, water and wildlife across the nation and the globe. He was the founding sponsor of Waterkeeper Alliance, which replicated the successful Hudson Riverkeeper model, propelling a movement of over 200 collaborative organizations defending waterbodies across the world.
