Murray A. Newman Awards for Excellence in Aquatic Research and Conservation

Deadline: February

Additional information

"The Murray A. Newman Award was created in 1995 as a tribute to the retirement of the Vancouver Aquarium’s founding director, Dr. Murray A. Newman. This prestigious award is presented every year to celebrate significant aquatic research and conservation work conducted in British Columbia; B.C. residents involved in conservation and research efforts elsewhere are also eligible. Determined by the research committee of the Vancouver Aquarium’s board, two “Murrays” are presented every year – one for significant advances in aquatic research and the other for significant achievement in aquatic conservation."
