SeaDoc Society Seeks Nominations for Salish Sea Science Prize
Sept 9, 2013: Every two years the SeaDoc Society awards the Salish Sea Science Prize to a prominent scientist or team of scientists whose work has resulted in the marked improvement of management or policy related to the conservation of marine wildlife and the Salish Sea marine ecosystem. The recipient(s) do not need to be a resident of Washington or British Columbia as long as their scientific efforts or use of science have led to measurable impacts on the Salish Sea ecosystem. The $2,000 prize comes with no strings attached and is designed to highlight the importance of science in providing a foundation for designing a healthy Salish Sea ecosystem.
The SeaDoc Society requests that members of the community nominate highly deserving award candidates. All nominations must be sent electronically to Jean Spalti by February 1, 2014. The award will be given in conjunction with the 2014 Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference, to be held April 30 - May 2, 2014.
