National Audubon Society
Environmental & Coastal
Reporting with flying colors.
The National Audubon Society is a nonprofit conservation organization founded in 1905. For over 100 years, Audubon has been saving birds and their habitats throughout the Americas, and inspiring people to appreciate and protect the natural world, using science, advocacy, education and on-the-ground conservation work. Audubon’s state programs, nature centers, chapters and partners have an unparalleled wingspan. The mission of our local chapter, Audubon Louisiana, is to conserve and restore our state’s natural ecosystems. Both The National Audubon Society and Audubon Louisiana have turned to Deep Fried to help them spread vital information to the public, and to inspire people to support regional and national conservation work.
Birds & Climate Report 2.0
We were commissioned by the National Audubon Society to design their robust Fall 2019 report, “Survival by Degrees: 389 Bird Species on the Brink.” Audubon scientists studied 604 North American bird species using 140 million bird records. The report projects a daunting future for 2/3 of North American bird species at risk of extinction from climate change, and urges us to improve changes for the species at risk.
Birds of Our Coast INFOGRAPHIC
In 2018, we created a Birds of Louisiana’s Coast infographic for Audubon Louisiana. Coastal Louisiana supports 100 million birds. The graphic showcases vital coastal habitats within our state and the bird species that depend on them, as well as the environmental threat each species faces, and the coastal restoration projects anticipated to benefit them.
Conservation awareness – not just for the birds.
Gulf Waterbird Report
Audubon Louisiana commissioned us to design “Restoring the Gulf of Mexico,” their comprehensive 2019 plan to build a resilient Gulf Coast for birds and people, recommending an investment of more than $1.7 billion across the region. This plan showcases restoration programs across the Gulf Coast that are working to restore the waters, habitats, and ecosystems affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill.
The Gulf Waterbird Report was awarded a Gold Addy in 2020 for the category of book design.
