  1. 2017 marks the second year of the Walker Communications Fellowship. This year's Fellows were Christine Lin, Rasheen Fountain, and Alana Phan. Christine and Alana were based in New York Headquarters, while Rasheena was based at Seward Park Audubon Center in Seattle, Washington.

  12. In addition to sharing on social, we sent this video to our under 40 crowd via email, and saw some great responses.
  13. Christine also identified that Audubon is eligible for the YouTube Affiliate Program due to our nonprofit status and the number of followers we have on the platform. This means we have access to their sets, cameras, and other resources for six hours a month. The equivalent monetary value for this would be nearly impossible for a nonprofit to self fund.
