Keck Award

The IIC Keck Award was generously endowed by Sheldon and Caroline Keck to commemorate their shared lives of distinguished achievement in conservation. The award is presented every two years at the IIC Congress to the individual or group who has, in the opinion of IIC Council, contributed most towards promoting public understanding of conservation and engagement with the accomplishments of the conservation profession.

The award consists of a certificate and a prize of £2500, which will be presented at the next biennial IIC Congress in Edinburgh, 2 - 6 November 2020.
