Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network

Pablo Canevari Award

Pablo Canevari
Pablo Canevari was a visionary director of the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network, a scientist, a colleague, and a dear friend.

Every two years, Manomet presents a USD$2,000.00 award to an individual or organization from Latin America that has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to shorebird conservation—much the way Pablo Canevari did before he died suddenly in March 2000.

The award recognizes and supports exemplary work in the field of shorebird conservation. Pablo is remembered for his extraordinary dedication and passion—personally and professionally—to the conservation of shorebirds throughout his career.

The biennial award schedule shifted in 2015 to coincide with the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Group (WHSG) meetings, also held every two years. The 2015 Award winner was selected from among the many highly qualified candidates already nominated in 2014. The next open call for nominations is for the 2017 Award - due by 15 March 2017.
