Johnson Awarded as an Elective Member of the American Ornithologists’ Union

Exciting news coming out of Audubon Louisiana! Our Director of Bird Conservation, Erik Johnson, has been nominated and awarded as an Elective Member of the American Ornithologist's Union (AOU) - a recognition for significant contributions to ornithology and/or service to the AOU. This nomination and membership is a testament to Erik's tireless work and dedication to the field of ornithology.

This prestigious honor is even more significant, as this is the last "class" of Elective Members of the AOU due to the recent merging of the AOU and Cooper Ornithological Society (the two largest ornithological societies in North America) to form the American Ornithologists' Society (AOS). 

Congratulations, Erik!
