Society for Conservation Biology (SCB): Inviting applications for ‘SCB 2019 Global Distinguished Service Awards’ to recognize scientists and institutions from around the world for extraordinary contributions to conservation biology and the preservation of Earth’s biodiversity.

Funding brief: In 1987, shortly after its founding, the Society for Conservation Biology started an awards tradition to recognize scientists and institutions from around the world for extraordinary contributions to conservation biology and the preservation of Earth’s biodiversity. Past winners include Albert Gore, Eleanor Sterling, Michael Soulé, Georgina Mace, E.O. Wilson, David Attenborough, Phoebe Barnard, Bat Conservation International, and the Marine Mammal Commission.

Until 2011, SCB Service Awards were presented annually at the International Congress for Conservation Biology. Following SCB’s 25th ICCB in Auckland, New Zealand in 2011, ICCB moved to a biennial schedule. Today, SCB Global Service Awards are presented in years when ICCB is held and SCB Regional Service Awards are presented in years where SCB Groups host regional congresses.

SCB Service Award Types:
Distinguished Service Award
The Edward T. LaRoe III Memorial Award
The Early Career Conservationist Award
The Conservation Beacon Award

The SCB Awards Committee reserves the right to shift a candidate from one award category to another.
