In addition to the three Ramsar Wetland Conservation Awards granted for 2002, a Recognition of Excellence has been conferred upon two individuals whose distinguished service has significantly furthered the cause of wetland conservation and wise use. One of these awards goes to our President, Dr Max Finlayson. Max is being recognized for his great contributions both to the progress of wetland science and to the work of the Ramsar Convention, particularly in providing leadership to the work of the Convention's Scientific and Technical Review Panel (STRP) in the ten years since its creation. The award also recognises his research both in Australia and abroad, his role in the establishment of the Mediterranean Wetlands Initiative (MedWet) and of course for his long and successful association with Wetlands International.
