ICF Honored with Three Recent Awards

Good things come in threes — we are honored that ICF has been recognized with three recent awards that highlight our achievements in Whooping Crane recovery efforts, conservation biology in India, and international good-will.

One. In mid-April, ICF Co-founder Dr. George Archibald (right) was presented with the Jerome J. Pratt Whooping Crane Award by the Whooping Crane Conservation Association. George received the award, in recognition of his achievements on behalf of Whooping Cranes and their recovery, during the North American Crane Workshop in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Two. Last week, ICF SarusScape Program Director Dr. K.S. Gopi Sundar (left) was among five conservation biologists in India to receive the 2014 Carl Zeiss Conservation Award. At the awards ceremony held at the Habitat Center in Delhi, Gopi shared the story of India’s cranes and their relationship with ancient farming traditions in northern India (learn more about Gopi’s research).

Three. This Saturday, May 3, ICF will receive a Corporate Citizen Award from the International Institute of Wisconsin (IIW). The award will be presented at the IIW’s World Citizen Celebration dinner at the Women’s Club of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wis. ICF was chosen as an award recipient in recognition of our commitments to cultural appreciation, international understanding, and social responsibility. You may still purchase tickets for the dinner ($95/person) through the end of the day Wednesday, April 30. Please call 414-225-6220 ext. 103 for more information and/or to make your reservations.
