National Audubon Society Calls on Cloakroom

|The National Audubon Society has retained Interpublic government relations firm Cloakroom Advisors LLC for environmental lobbying help in Washington.
The environmental and conservation non-profit is specifically seeking Cloakroom’s support on issues related to federal bird habitats.
In an April Q&A featured in Audubon magazine, Audubon president and CEO David Yarnold outlined a five-year strategy for the conservation network to positively impact the future of birds, which includes an initiative that calls on Americans to plant native plants that provide healthy ecosystems for bird species. The organization plans to launch an online guide later this year to help people find native plants enjoyed by birds that populate the areas in which they live.
Handling the Audubon account is Cloakroom principal Gregg Hartley, who was formerly chief of staff to Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO), now Missouri’s junior Senator. Hartley, who founded Cloakroom in 2014, is a former vice chairman and chief operating officer of lobbying firm Cassidy & Associates.
