The eighth annual Nature of Scotland Awards are open for applications until 4 June 2019.

This year SAGES is sponsoring a new award category:

Conservation Science Award

This award will recognise and celebrate an individual or group of scientists whose published peer-reviewed research has either had a demonstrable impact in support of nature conservation in Scotland, or can show exceptional promise of such impact in the future.
We have purposefully phrased a very broad definition of Conservation Science, and rigorous scientific method will be key to the winning application:

“Important scientific contributions to nature conservation can take many forms, from directly informing the management of species, habitats, physical environments and ecosystems to influencing policy, scientific thinking or innovation in methods. We welcome applications from or nominations of scientists in any field whose work has made an outstanding contribution in these respects.”

Entry is simple and free – I encourage you to consider applying!

Find more information on the Nature of Scotland awards at the RSPB website.

Applications should be submitted to [email protected] by Tuesday 04 June 2019.
