-- President's Award For Conservation --

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
New posting today at Cornell's website details the "President's Award For Conservation" awarded to Gene Sparling, Tim Gallagher, and Bobby Harrison for their sighting of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker in Arkansas. Worth visiting the page just to see these 3 in formalwear and bowtie -- not likely to ever happen again (they look more at-home when in camo and swamp mud)!

Comments:
The Explorers' Club has a history of not tolerating false claims, i.e.:

Explorers' Club Investigate and Reject Dr. Cook's Claim to Have Climbed Mount McKinley and Then Expel Him from Membership.

Will be interesting to see what they do if the IBWO "rediscovery" does not end well.
