Aldo Leopold leadership program moves to Stanford University and awards new fellowships for 2005

The Aldo Leopold Leadership Program, which trains academic environmental scientists to communicate effectively to non-scientists, has relocated to Stanford University. The program had been based at the New England Aquarium in Boston before joining the Stanford Institute for the Environment earlier this year.

Debbie Drake Dunne, former director of government relations for the Nature Conservancy of California, has been appointed the new executive director of the program.

"The Leopold Leadership Program is a unique and exciting program, and we are proud to have it become part of the Stanford Institute for the Environment," said Pamela Matson, the Chester Naramore Dean of the Stanford School of Earth Sciences and co-chair of the program steering committee.

In addition to announcing the move to Stanford, program officials also released the names of 19 environmental scientists who have been awarded Aldo Leopold Fellowships for 2005. Each fellow will receive intensive training on communicating environmental science to policymakers, the media, business leaders and the public. This year's fellows represent a broad range of environmental science disciplines, including forest ecology, sustainable agriculture, environmental engineering and oceanography. A complete list of all 99 fellowship recipients, past and present, is available at http://www.leopoldleadership.org.

"The 2005 cohort of Leopold Leadership Fellows comprises a truly outstanding group of scientists working to address today's most important environmental challenges," said program founder and steering committee co-chair Jane Lubchenco, Distinguished Professor of Zoology at Oregon State University.

Founded in 1998 with funding from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the program is named for Aldo Leopold, a prominent environmental scientist whose writings, including his 1949 book, A Sand County Almanac, are credited with infu
