Description: Iconic species, such as Scarlet Tanagesr and Bobolinks, are focal species of Audubon chapters’ conservation efforts that also connect us to Hemispheric initiatives supporting communities and habitats across the Americas.

John Hannan is a local resident of Somers and a long-time member of Bedford Audubon. He has been a serious bird watcher, ornithologist and non-profit practitioner for 30+ years. During this time John has worked to address several key intertwined problem areas affecting civil society; environmental degradation, poverty and the lack of human rights.
In the 80s and 90s, he helped promote economic stability, human rights and sustainable development for rural communities in Central America. Focusing more locally in NY city, John created volunteer programs to assist the poor and disabled. From there he went on to lead the financial and development efforts at Riverkeeper in order to protect the Hudson River and its surrounding watershed. As Executive Director of Bridges to Community, he supervised the management of hundreds of health, education environmental and economic development projects conducted by thousands of volunteers, mostly from this area, working side by side with residents of rural communities in Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
He has been a part of the Audubon family at all levels. On staff, at National Audubon, he helped launch the Flyway Strategies’ fund-raising efforts, lead the CT State Office’s development efforts and was part of the planning team for the Atlantic Flyway Shorebird Conservation Business. In NY, he is a past Chair of the Audubon NY State Chapters’ Council and a past President of Bedford Audubon’s Board of Directors. He now is focusing his energy on uniting people across the globe to support global bird conservation through the BirdLife global Partnership which National Audubon Society is a key member of.
