About SCB Global Awards

SCB Global Service Awards are presented every other year at the Society's International Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB). The next SCB Global Service Awards will be presented at ICCB 2019 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (21-25 July 2019).

SCB will present up to five Distinguished Service Awards at ICCB 2019 to individuals, groups or institutions for distinguished service in biodiversity conservation. Individuals may also be nominated in the following special categories of Distinguished Service Awards:

  • The Early Career Conservationist Award honors achievements in conservation by professionals early in their careers (no more than 10 years since leaving school). 
  • The Conservation Beacon Award recognizes women of marginalized and multiply marginalized status that are traditionally under-served within higher education. 
  • The Edward T. LaRoe III Memorial Award recognizes the innovative application of science to resource management and policy. Preference is given to employees of government agencies or individuals who have spent at least part of their career in public service.   

Visit the 2019 SCB Service Awards Nomination page to learn about each award category and to download the nominations form. Non members are eligible to win an award, but you must be a member to make a nomination. Self-nominations are accepted. All nominations must include at least two letters of support.
