A group of Alabama wildlife biologists and dedicated volunteers who are working to protect the state’s bat population took home a coveted honor during the annual Governor’s Conservation Achievement Awards.
The Alabama Bat Working Group (ABWG) was recently recognized as “Wildlife Conservationist of the Year” during the awards event, coordinated and hosted by the Alabama Wildlife Federation. The Governor’s Conservation Achievement Awards are considered the most prestigious conservation awards in the state.
Nick Sharp, a biologist with the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR), accepted the award on behalf of ABWG. Formed in 2009, the ABWG brings together individuals, organizations and agencies interested in conserving Alabama’s bat species. It includes biologists working in several of the state’s National Forests, biologists from Alabama Power, and other experts and volunteers from universities and public and private sector organizations in the state.
