Salish Sea Science Prize: Call for Nominations

prizeThe nomination period for the 2014 Salish Sea Science Prize is now closed.

The nomination deadline was 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.

The Salish Sea Science prize is given every two years by the SeaDoc Society to highlight the importance of science in providing a foundation for designing a healthy Salish Sea ecosystem.

About the prize

The $2,000 prize comes with no strings attached. It is given 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.

Note that this is not a “lifetime achievement” award. We are looking for nominations of people who have produced science that has profoundly improved management or policy, or of people who have used science to improve management or policy to advance the health of marine wildlife and the Salish Sea marine ecosystem.

The award is given in recognition of and to honor Stephanie Wagner, who loved the region and its wildlife.
