Lifetime and Special Achievement Awards
In 1993, PSG instituted two awards to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to seabirds.
PSG Lifetime Achievement Award
A seabird researcher, educator, or conservationist who has made significant, long-term contributions to seabird science, conservation and education in the Pacific Ocean or the world.
PSG Special Achievement Award
An individual who has performed outstanding, long-term service for the Pacific Seabird Group, or who has achieved an outstanding and significant exemplary accomplishment for the betterment of seabird research, education, and/or conservation, or both.
Student Presentation Awards
Student presentation awards are given out at each year at the Annual Meeting. Papers and posters are judged separately according to guidelines that include originality, presentation style, graphics, format and research data. The award guidelines and judging forms can be found in the PSG Handbook.
Travel awards are generally given each year to help students and scientists from USA, Canada and other countries to attend the annual meeting. There are three travel award categories; US/Canada Students; Non-US/Canada Students, and non-US/Canada Scientists. More information can be found in the PSG Handbook. Funds to support travel awards are received from the annual Silent Auction and from donations, please donate here.
