On May 16, 2017, the National Audubon Society celebrated the legacy of female leadership in conservation, by presenting Jamie Rappaport Clark, President and CEO of Defenders of Wildlife, Dr. Heidi Cullen, Chief Scientist at Climate Central, and Anne Thompson, NBC News’ Chief Environmental Affairs Correspondent with the Rachel Carson Award at The Plaza Hotel in New York City. This prestigious award recognizes visionary women whose dedication, talent, and energy have advanced environmental and conservation positive change both locally and on a global scale.
