Written by 

Jim Costa, a biology professor at Western Carolina University and the Director of the Highlands Biological Station, has been nominated for the Roosevelt-Ashe Conservation Awards to be given out by Wild South later this month.

The awards recognize and honor outstanding work to protect wild places and wild things in the South. Nominees hail from five Southern states and exemplify dedication and passion for environmental conservation. 

“It takes working together with partners all across our region to provide landscape-level protection,” said Benjamin Colvin, Wild South’s Development Director. “We believe it is vital to recognize and celebrate the incredible work being done to unite voices for environmental protection, to promote conservation science and education, to advocate for wildlife, and to protect cultural heritage on public lands.”
