Honorees Spencer Beebe and Laura and Jack Dangermond attend the 2015 National Audubon Society Gala Dinner at the Plaza Hotel in New York City on March 31, 2015.

Jack and Laura Dangermond, founders of Esri, were awarded the Audubon Medal at the National Audubon Society’s Gala Dinner at The Plaza Hotel in New York City on March 31, 2015. The two were recognized for their outstanding achievement in geographic information system (GIS) technology and conservation innovation as well as their support for research institutions, schools and nonprofit organizations.

Also recognized was Spencer Beebe, founder of Ecotrust and co-founder of Conservation International, who received the third annual Lufkin Prize for Environmental Leadership.

The Audubon Society put together the following background video to describe GIS and share the vision of the Dangermonds as well as to showcase Esri employees who work to support conservation across the globe.

“Jack and Laura are really unique in their creation of a company to change the world,” says Tom Fisher, professor of architecture and dean of the College of Design at the University of Minnesota. “You rarely see that in American business, but yet when you see what they have done at Esri, you see that this is possible.”
