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

Each year since 2010, the NatureServe network has presented the NatureServe Conservation Award to honor individual achievements that contribute to the conservation of biological diversity. The award recognizes recipients who:

  • Significantly increase the public profile of the importance of biodiversity conservation
  • Pursue innovative and creative approaches to and impacts on biodiversity conservation
  • Set an example for others in their use of biodiversity information in making decisions
  • Inspire others to take action towards conserving biodiversity

Nominations are solicited from throughout the entire NatureServe network, and the recipient is selected by a committee comprised of NatureServe staff and board members, network member representatives, and previous recipients.

Previous recipients of the award are:

  • 2010: Robert Jenkins, first chief scientist of The Nature Conservancy and founder of the NatureServe network's natural heritage methodology
  • 2011: Scientist and author E. O. Wilson
  • 2012: Administrator and policy maker William Ruckelshaus
