Sean Gerrity Receives Award from National Wildlife Federation

On June 20, the National Wildlife Federation (one of our valued collaborators) recognized its 2016 conservation heroes, including Sean Gerrity, the president of American Prairie Reserve. As the recipient of National Conservation Special Achievement Award, Sean is recognized "for his efforts to protect a large area of native grasslands and wildlife habitat in and around Montana’s Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge."

More from the National Wildlife Federation:

"Sean Gerrity is a visionary who dreams big and who is able to translate this ambition into on-the-ground conservation success,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “We are fortunate that he has chosen to combine his business acumen with his passion for wildlife to leave this extraordinary legacy for future generations of Americans.”


And from the NWF blog:

Sean Gerrity, President of American Prairie Reserve and a National Geographic Fellow, is committed to wildlife conservation on a grand scale and is at the helm of the largest wildlife complex ever assembled in the continental United States that will one day encompass some 3.5 million acres of native grassland and wildlife habitat. Leading the American Prairie Reserve project has enabled Gerrity to combine his business skills with his passion for wildlife to leave an extraordinary, nature-based legacy for future generations. The Reserve is an important partner for NWF’s work on restoring bison to the Northern Great Plains.
