8 environmental stewards win $900,000 in biodiversity awards

l Garden in Madagascar, one of the most biodiversity rich, yet biologically endangered, places on Earth. The U.K. citizen has shown great talent in blending the hopes and desires of the Malagasy people with conservation programs. One of his colleagues has written that Birkinshaw's success is largely due to his "being particularly attentive to the needs and sensitivities of the Malagasy. . . and his ability to offer advice rather than telling people what to do."

Steven M. Goodman, a U.S. citizen employed by the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, lives also in Madagascar, where he has been cited as doing more to study the fauna than any other living person. Goodman has often risked his personal safety to complete natural history collections, but he also has conducted conservation biology and field inventory courses for Malagasy students. He published, with Jonathan Benstead, the massive volume, The Natural History of Madagascar.

Curt Meine, a U.S. citizen and resident of Wisconsin, works with the International Crane Foundation and the World Conservation Union's Crane Specialist Group. Recently he has led an effort to examine the needs of Wisconsin's fresh water ecosystems. And, in his home community of Sauk Prairie, Wisconsin, Meine has been a leader in developing a community-driven consensus plan for conserving the now-vacant property of the Badger Army Ammunition Plant, a 7,350-acre World War II munitions factory. Meine has written: "conservation requires solid science, effective policy, and sound technique; but ultimately conservation is a human activity that is undertaken by people whose commitments are shaped by their culture."

Emerging Leaders Awards

The nominators chose two other scientists who, in the Foundations' words, "have shown early achievements and creative excellence in solving problems relevant to conserving biodiversity." They are:
