The Wildlife Society is accepting nominations for the 2012 award in the category of audio-visual works. CEC member Ron DeArmond invites submissions by March 15.
Conservation Education Award
This award gives recognition to an important kind of professional endeavor not covered by other honors of the Wildlife Society. Conservation education covers a wide diversity of activity. It encompasses particular works of great merit and also programs representing sustained effort that can achieve great significance over the years. Presumably, any kind of effort that influences public opinion in a constructive manner might be honored in this way. The award encompasses the broad field of renewable resources conservation and management, but wildlife is expected to be the focus of nominated works.
This award may be given to an artist, photographer, lecturer, radio commentator, songwriter, film producer, computer programmer, or other creative worker whose accomplishments are outstanding in the dissemination of conservation knowledge to the public. The recipient can also be a group of people.
CEC member Ron DeArmond is on the selection committee. For more information, contact: ron@pellawildlifecomp...
