Ann Paul
President

Ann started on the Board of Directors in 1990 as our Secretary, She later served as Chapter President was again elected as Chapter President in June 2021. Called “wading birds’ best human friend” by National Audubon Society, she won the 2018 winner of the Theodore Roosevelt Hillsborough Forever Conservation Award and served as the Regional Coordinator for Audubon Florida's Coastal Island Sanctuaries for over 30 years, contributing to the knowledge and protection of aquatic bird species that rely on the Sanct-uaries. Born and raised in Gainesville, Ann now lives in Riverview. She has trouble choosing a favorite bird, as the more she learns about any one species of bird, the more she wants to know about them. Ann has a passion for protecting birds and their habitats, which results in important benefits for people, too: clean air and water, and beautiful recreation areas.

Tammy joined TAS in 1988 shortly after moving to Tampa from the Midwest to get more involved in the local conservation community. She has been on the Board of Directors off and on since May 2008, serving as Vice President from 2008 to 2013, and again starting in 2020.  Birding has always been an enjoyable part of her profession as an ecologist. Her favorite bird is the roseate spoonbill, because it is such an iconic Florida bird that brightens up the landscape.
