      [Before heading off for holiday preparations, think about providing a
      holiday gift to a deserving colleague, by taking the time to prepare
      a nomination for the 2006 Euan P. Mcfarlane Environmental Leadership
      Award for Outstanding Environmental Leadership.

      We welcome all nominations, in the framework of the award criteria
      listed below, and we would encourage re-submissions of previous
      nominations if we have not been able to accept candidates in the
      past. Mail to Judith Ann Towle <jtowle@...>.

      We hope to be able to present this year's award at the Annual General
      Meeting of the Caribbean Conservation Associatiion, now scheduled for
      1 to 4 February, 2007.]


      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
      and whose career or avocation demonstrates an appreciation of and
      adherence to the advancement of environmental stewardship and
      balanced development in the Caribbean.
