THE EUAN P. McFARLANE ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP AWARD
FOR OUTSTANDING ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP IN THE INSULAR CARIBBEAN
The Euan P. McFarlane Award was established in 1987 to provide
recognition for persons demonstrating initiative, resourcefulness and
leadership in promoting conservation and enhancement of the
environment in the insular Caribbean, with priority given to the
smaller islands of the eastern Caribbean.
Euan P. McFarlane, after whom this award was named, was until his
death in 1983 actively involved in environmental causes in the
Caribbean. He was a former Treasurer and Board Member of the
Caribbean Conservation Association, a Trustee of the Island Resources
Foundation, and a founding member of the St. Croix Landmarks Society.
Endowment funding was provided by Mr. Laurance S. Rockefeller, and
the program is administered by the Island Resources Foundation, an
independent, not-for-profit NGO dedicated to improved environmental
planning for the development of small island states.
Nominees for the McFarlane Award should be persons who have applied
themselves to the preservation of the natural or built environment
