National Conservation Achievement Award Nominations

Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog

The nomination period  for the 2013 honorees is currently closed.  Information to nominate your conservation hero for the 2014 awards will be available in the coming months.

Who Are We Looking For?

All across America people and organizations inspire us to protect wildlife for our children’s future. They commit their time and energy not for the credit, but for the results. They do this work because they are called to it--they cannot ignore, or excuse, or wish someone else would take up the call. 

These heroes have stepped up to do their part to protect wildlife and our natural world--please help us identify them and honor them. 

Award Categories

Awards are presented in 13 categories.  In any given year not all categories will necessarily have an award winner.

Award Criteria

The nomination form will ask for a summary of the nominee’s achievements.  Please consider the following questions in describing your nominee’s conservation contribution. 

  • How do the nominee’s efforts directly or indirectly benefit wildlife, natural resource conservation or environmental protection?
  • What are the most specific results of the nominee’s efforts? (These can range from passage of legislation or on-the-ground resource improvements, to building environmental understanding or awareness among a particular audience.)
  • Does the nominee have a history of commitment and accomplishment?
  • Has the nominee’s contribution resulted from volunteer or work/business-related efforts?
  • How have the nominee’s contributions served as an example/inspiration to others?
