SCB Service Awards
SCB is proud of the career achievements of its members and the outstanding contributions they make to conservation every day and we honor those achievements through an official awards program.
In 2016, the SCB Service Awards will be run through SCB Sections and Working Groups, and awards will be presented at SCB regional congresses in June - September.
Please contact your Group's representative on the Awards Committee (see below), or Awards Committee Chair Carolyn Lundquist for further information.
In 2015, SCB presented Distinguished Service Awards to Elsa Cabrera, the founder and CEO of Cenro de Conservacion Cetacea, Chile; Kerry Sink, the Marine Program Manager at the South African National Biodiversity Institute; and Mike Hoffman, who accepted the award on behalf of the IUCN Red List. Stacy Jupiter won the Early Career Conservationist Award for her work in Oceania on human activities on linked tropical coastal ecosystems and ecosystem services.
