Louis Bacon Receives Audubon Medal For Conservation, Environmental Work

In the Bahamas, Mr. Bacon has led a campaign to preserve Clifton Point and create the Bahamas Clifton Heritage Park. Today, as a result of his work, Clifton Cay is a national park, protected forever on behalf of the people of the Bahamas as well as the birds and the wildlife. 

On Long Island, he donated a conservation easement and developed a habitat restoration and management plan on Robins Island that will preserve the island as a haven for endangered shorebirds, including Least terns and Piping plover.

In North Carolina, he restored an extensive habitat of rice fields, marshes and long leaf pine forest at Orton Plantation, which in the early 20 th century was home to the only known colony of the Great Egret, the Audubon's iconic symbol. This effort increased the populations of egrets, herons and the endangered Red-cockaded woodpecker to the area.

In Colorado, he led an effort to stop the construction of industrial transmission lines across the San Luis Valley. There he partnered with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to create the longest protected wildlife corridor in the Lower 48 states by donating the 167,000-acre easement that launched Salazar's Sangre de Cristo Conservation Area. His 260 square miles of Colorado landscape -- an area 8 times larger than the island of Manhattan -- is the largest conservation easement ever donated to the U.S. Fish And Wildlife Service.

He supported the Nature Conservancy's creation of a 50-acre safe haven for three protected bird species on Tern Island, New York, and he backed a campaign to protect the Everglades, key to wading birds like the Roseate spoonbill. He is a leading supporter of the National Audubon Society, its state field operations and numerous chapters.

In 1992, Mr. Bacon created the Moore Charitable Foundation to provide financial support to nonprofit organizations that work to preserve and protect wildlife habitat and improve water systems. Since then, the foundation has provided significant funding to local and national conservation and environmental protection agencies. Mr. Bacon is the founder and CEO of Moore Capital Management, LP and received his B.A. in American Literature from Middlebury College and his M.B.A. in Finance from Columbia Business School.
