Presented by Paul Souza, Asst. Dir., Science Applications; Soch Lor, Field Supv., Anchorage Fish and Wildlife Office; & Megan Cook, Science Coordination Specialist, Science Applications. October 2, 1014.

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 2014 call for nominations will be sent on or around September 29. Nominations are due November 6 and Region/Program review and approval must be completed by November 19. This webinar will provide an overview of the Science Award nomination process and requirements, including examples of how to address the award criteria, an overview of previous winners, and a brief tutorial on how to use the SharePoint nomination site.
