Anthony Hauck

Communications Manager, Audubon Conservation Ranching

Anthony has dedicated his career to conservation communications, with nearly 20 years of communications experience in news media, state natural resource agencies, and conservation NGOs. For Audubon, Anthony focuses on publicizing the value of the Audubon bird-friendly habitat certification. This includes growing awareness for the Audubon Certified bird-friendly seal, a special package & promotional label on beef and bison products that tells consumers products were grazed on lands managed for birds and biodiversity. He also works to build a better public perception of grazing – specifically rotational grazing – as an essential grassland habitat management tool that's key to stabilizing declining grassland bird populations.

Anthony is a proud native of the prairie, with grassland and agricultural roots along the Minnesota and South Dakota border. His love for birds took flight at Salt Lake, a historic prairie basin and birding destination bordered by both states.
