American Society of Mammalogists honors CI president Russell Mittermeier with Aldo Leopold award

Washington, DC (July 29, 2004) Conservation International President Dr. Russell A. Mittermeier was awarded the second annual Aldo Leopold Award from the American Society of Mammalogists (ASM), CI announced today. The ASM created the award to honor individuals who have made outstanding and lasting contributions to the conservation of mammals and their habitats. In a written statement to the recipient, the ASM's president, Dr. Bruce D. Patterson, highlighted Mittermeier's "productivity as a scientist and [his] effective leadership of several conservation organizations, especially CI."

The Aldo Leopold Award honors the memory of the early 20th Century conservationist Aldo Leopold, a former ASM member who is well known for his land ethic philosophy and considered to be the "father" of wildlife ecology and management. Last year, the inaugural Aldo Leopold Award was presented to Dr. E. O. Wilson of Harvard University, who serves on CI's Board of Directors.

"What a wonderful surprise and great honor it is to receive only the second award named after the greatest conservationist of all time, Aldo Leopold," Mittermeier said.

Mittermeier, who has a Ph.D. in biological anthropology from Harvard University, is a prominent primatologist, herpetologist and wildlife conservationist with more than 30 years of field experience in Central and South America, Africa and Asia. Having served as CI's president since 1989, he is the only active field biologist to head an international conservation organization.

Mittermeier's fieldwork has focused on primates, protected areas and other conservation issues in Brazil, Suriname, Madagascar and more than 20 other countries. His areas of expertise include biological diversity and its value to humanity, ecosystem conservation, tropical biology and species conservation. Mittermeier's publications include 10 books and more than 300 papers and popular articles on primates, reptiles, tropical forests and biodiversity.
