The Wildlife Society’s Wildlife Restoration Awards recognize outstanding projects supported by Wildlife Restoration funds (also known as Pittman-Robertson funds) and associated non-federal matching funds.
Two Wildlife Restoration Awards will be given each year, one in each of the following categories: Wildlife Management (restore, conserve, manage, and enhance wild bird and mammal populations) and Wildlife Research and Surveys.
The primary eligibility criteria are that the nominated project must fit in one of the two award categories and must have been conducted using Wildlife Restoration and associated non-federal matching funds consistent with Section 4(b) of the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act. Because many projects are ongoing or occur over longer time frames, there are no formal constraints on timing of projects nominated. However, to be eligible a nominated project must have a defined ending date. This criterion is intended to differentiate projects from ongoing programs funded with Wildlife Restoration funds.
Award nominations may be submitted by TWS members in good standing. Nominations are especially encouraged from federal and state/provincial agency staff who are directly or indirectly involved with administration and/or implementation of projects accomplished with Pittman-Robertson funding.
Similar projects or ongoing programs without a defined ending date may be eligible for the Group Achievement Award.
Ten-page project nominations should be submitted that provide essential information, including the project title, the name of the agency receiving Wildlife Restoration funds to conduct the project, project need, objectives, procedures, results, benefits and evaluation. The narrative should address the appropriate awards criteria described below:
Up to five pages of supporting materials (e.g., lists of presentations, bibliographic material, etc.) may be sent in addition to the ten-page nomination. You may designate one of the award categories (Wildlife Management or Wildlife Research and Surveys), but the awards committee reserves the right to change the category if appropriate.
Submit these materials via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The nomination and complete supporting documentation should be sent as a single PDF by May 1, 2021 at 11:59 pm EDT.
