The ESA is saddened to hear of the passing of Peter Hitchcock. Peter was one of Australia’s most remarkable environmentalists, with national and global contributions to forest conservation, rainforest protection, World Heritage, and national parks.
Since its inception in 1959, the ESA has dedicated itself to promoting ecology, supporting the application of ecological principles to protect and conserve ecosystems, and promoting the exchange of ecological knowledge for education and cultural development.
Grants of up to $7,500 are available to Australian postgraduate students who are conducting field work on Australian native plants and animals; conservation biology and biodiversity studies; or wildlife management.
The Wiley Next Generation Ecologist Award is a funding initiative aimed directly at supporting early-career researchers (ECRs) through a research and professional development grant and Plenary opportunity.
