The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Science Awards were established to recognize that effective wildlife management and conservation is founded on innovative scientific inquiry and principles. As the Service faces increasingly complex challenges, the value of current scientific information is rapidly increasing. The awards are meant to recognize the outstanding efforts of the agency’s scientists and technical staff. The Science Leadership Award recognizes a Service employee’s exemplary practice and support of scientific activities to improve the Service’s knowledge and management of fish and wildlife resources. The Rachel Carson Award for Scientific Excellence (individual and group) recognizes exemplary scientific contributions to achieving extraordinary results in fish and wildlife conservation. The winners receive an honorary award plus $50,000 to their station budget for one fiscal year to bolster their science programs. - The FY 2012 call for nominations will be sent on or around October 1 and nominations will be due in early November. This webinar will provide an overview of the Science Award nomination requirements and process, including examples of how to address the award criteria, overview of previous winners, and a brief tutorial on how to use the SharePoint nomination site.
