WOS Lifetime
Achievement Award

The WOS Lifetime Achievement Award is given to the person who have made a lasting contribution to ornithology in Wales. These are nominated by WOS members and associate Clubs.

Who can nominate?
Any member of WOS, affiliated bird clubs or Wildlife Trust bird group in Wales can nominate a person for the award. The nominee does not have to be a WOS member to receive the Award.

What do they win?
Each award is produced in glass for the winner to keep. They will be presented to the winner at the Conference, to which the nominee will be invited as a special guest.

How do I nominate someone and what does my nomination need to include?
Email your nomination to chair@birdsin.wales. You will need to include details of the nominee, confirmation of your eligibility to nominate and a supporting statement. It would be helpful if you could use the attached form (PDF or Word doc) when making a nomination.

What is the timescale for nominations?
We usually invite nominations in July each year, with a closing date of the end of September.

No award was made in 2020, but two awards were made in 2021 – to Bob Haycock and Al Venables.
