In this interview Charles Lee, the Director of Advocacy for Audubon Florida, describes his youth fishing in North Miami and how the letters he wrote to The Miami News, worked in advocacy against the dredging and filling of Biscayne Bay, paving the way for him to become the junior director of the Tropical Audubon Society. He recalls his rise through the ranks of Audubon Society, the evolution of Audubon Society, and the history of conservation in Florida. Charles also discusses how Audubon worked with both the local media and politicians to influence the water politics of Florida.
