Several past winners of CWF’s Women & Wildlife Awards celebrate at the 2018 ceremony

Women in science have come a long way since a National Geographic editor once called Jane Goodall “The blond girl studying apes.” That ‘girl’, of course, went on to become a world renowned researcher famous not only for her meticulous field studies of chimpanzees, but also as a tireless advocate for the natural world.

While much progress has been made, girls considering a career in science still struggle to find role models. For 14 years Conserve Wildlife Foundation has been celebrating women who protect New Jersey’s imperiled wildlife and inspire the next generation of women leaders.

We are excited to announce that nominations for the 14th annual Women & Wildlife Awards are now open. You are invited to nominate a woman for using her time and talent to protect New Jersey’s wildlife in recognition of her achievements, the advances she has made for women in her profession, her efforts to increase awareness of rare species and the habitats they depend on, and her contributions to New Jersey’s wildlife.

By acknowledging these special individuals, we hope to encourage more young women to strive to make a positive impact on species and habitat protection, especially through the biological sciences.

We encourage you to take this opportunity to nominate a woman who has distinguished herself in the service of New Jersey’s wildlife.

Nominations will be accepted in three categories:

  • Leadership
  • Inspiration
  • Education

Nominations will be accepted through Monday, August 19, 2019. Nominations submitted last year will automatically be reconsidered this year. Download the nomination form.
