Louis Bacon: 2013 Audubon Medal Honoree
At National Audubon Society's 2013 gala, philanthropist Louis Bacon received the esteemed Audubon Medal. The Moore Charitable Foundation, of which Louis Bacon is the founder, will provide a new gift to Audubon to create a resource center and powerful new advocacy tools for citizens who want to take action to minimize the impact of energy development on communities and wildlife.
"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," 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."
