invest in ecosystem services as valuable, quantifiable items. By documenting that paying the true cost for these natural benefits is necessary for human health and prosperity, the Assessment serves as the wellspring of myriad present-day efforts to understand and value ecosystem services.

"It is an honor to recognize Walt's leadership with this year's NatureServe Conservation Award," says Mary Klein, president and CEO of NatureServe. "The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment has had an enormous impact on the practice of conserving and restoring ecosystems. And its emphasis on collaboration and consensus between the scientific, business, and corporate communities offers a model for enacting meaningful policy changes."

About the Award
