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.
