30-Aug-2004

Presented in honour of Luc Hoffmann, one of the founders of Wetlands International, the award has been established in recognition of his outstanding legacy and achievements in wetlands science and conservation.

A nomination can be made by any member of the Wetlands International Board of Members. The award will be presented every triennium in honour of Luc Hoffmann, one of the founders of Wetlands International and a continuing source of inspiration and support to those who share his passion for wetlands. The organisation has established the award echoing Luc’s belief that effective nature conservation activities need to rely on good science, as well as in recognition of his own outstanding achievements in this field. The award will be conferred to an individual who has demonstrated excellence in one or more of 3 categories: • scientific research; • communication, education and/or public awareness; and • wetland management. The Wetlands International Luc Hoffmann Medal shall be awarded by decision of the Wetlands International Board of Directors. The deadline for nominations is 20 September. The first award presentation will take place at a reception on the evening of 25 November 2004, just prior to the start of the Board of Members meeting in Bangkok, Thailand.
