Dr. George Archibald: Audubon Dan W. Lufkin Prize for Environmental Leadership
At National Audubon Society's 2013 gala, George Archibald, co-founder of the International Crane Foundation, received the first Lufkin Prize and its $100,000 award.
Of his achievement, Archibald said: "I am honored to be the first recipient of The Dan W. Lufkin Prize for Environmental Leadership, and I am especially grateful to Dan and Cynthia Lufkin for their loyal support and dedication to crane conservation. This award is recognition of the achievements of the entire International Crane Foundation staff, our colleagues around the world and the thousands of people who give annually to our global conservation efforts. I really can't think of a better way to kick off the International Crane Foundation's 40th anniversary."
