      To avoid the conflict with Easter and Passover holidays, Island Resources Foundation has extended the deadline for nominations for the US$1,000 Euan McFarlane Environmental Leadership Award to April 8th -- other terms remain the same as spelled out in the flyer below, which you are encouraged to distribute and post for likely audiences. People do NOT have to be members of Island Resources Foundation to qualify for the 22nd McFarlane Award.

      you want to print and post or otherwise disseminate this announcement

      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 for the award has been provided by the late Laurance S. Rockefeller (and subsequently with endorsement by the estate of Mr. Rockefeller), and the award program is administered by Island Resources Foundation, an independent, not-for-profit NGO dedicated to strengthening 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 on one or more of the small islands of the Caribbean and whose career or avocation demonstrates an appreciation of and support for the advancement of environmental stewardship and balanced development in the Caribbean.
