YES! OUR PROGRAM WON, THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT VOTED.
Big news came down this week from South America as UNT's Sub-Antarctic Biocultural Conservation Program (SBCP) led by Director and founder Dr. Ricardo Rozzi has won the Strait of Magellan Award. The program was nominated by the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs to celebrate the 500-year anniversary of Magellan's discovery and recognize innovation in scientific research. The SBCP's innovation is titled, "Ecotourism with a Hand Lens in the Omora Park." The SBCP aims to approach conservation by coupling the social and ecological dynamics within policy making in Chile's UNESCO Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve at the southern tip of South America.
