Big congratulations to Stewart McPherson, the first recipient of the David Given Award for Excellence in Plant Conservation!
The David Given Award for Excellence in Plant Conservation is a new IUCN SSC (International Union for Conservation of Nature, Species Survival Commission) award created by the SSC Plant Conservation Sub-Committee to enhance the profile of plant conservation and encourage outstanding efforts of young plant conservation professionals.
Stew's outstanding work in the study, discovery and promotion of CP's exposure to the public, as well as his establishment of 'Ark of Life', a conservation program dedicated to ex situ conservation of the most threatened carnivorous plant taxa deserves all the recognition this award will bring him. Information about Stewart's work can be found at www.arkoflife.net
Once again, congratulations and best of luck Stew! ;D ;D ;D
