An annual award has been created to honor Kathleen S. Anderson's outstanding contributions to bird conservation, and to promote and perpetuate her special interests in environmental research and education. Mrs. Anderson served as Manomet Bird Observatory's Executive Director from 1969 to 1984. During Mrs. Anderson's tenure, many of Manomet's long-term studies were initiated. She has always been especially interested in encouraging young biologists and has served as an inspiration to many people of all ages beginning careers in biology. Today Mrs. Anderson continues to work for preservation of a healthy, diverse environment.
The purpose of this award is to encourage significant avian research in areas of interest to Kathleen Anderson and Manomet, and to help promising biologists in their work. Requests for support of ecological and behavioral studies of birds, especially research furthering bird conservation, will be considered (e.g. endangered or endemic species, population viability, effects of land uses, habitat requirements, migration ecology, feeding ecology, species interactions, etc.).
