Nominations are being accepted through July 30 for a prestigious award that recognizes significant contributions to wildlife and habitat conservation, as well as sustained commitment to the heritage of hunting. The Peter Hathaway Capstick Hunting Heritage Award is the top conservation and service award given by the Dallas Safari Club (DSC) and Dallas Ecological Foundation.
The Capstick Award is named for the well-known American author whose defense of hunting and conservation made him a household name. Capstick's widow, Fiona Claire, remains a DSC life member and is involved in award presentations. Recipients are selected based on their involvement in education, hunting, conservation organizations, humanitarian causes, research, permanent endowments and/or charitable giving.
The objective of this award is to bring honor and recognition to an individual, organization or group whose achievements reveal a sustained and significant contribution to the conservation of wildlife and its habitat. Additionally, the winner will have shown long-term commitment to our hunting heritage by pursuing that goal for the benefit of future generations.
Nominations can be made via mail or e-mail. Send to Dallas Safari Club, 13709 Gamma Rd, Dallas, TX 75244, USA, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
