CIRCLE has been given a national award for achieving significant impact in biodiversity conservation and environmental education.
The Impact Awards recognise and celebrate the success of collaborative working and the process of innovation, rewarding projects which take knowledge and expertise out of academia and use it for the wider benefit of society and the economy.
The Collaborative Impact Award recognises CIRCLE’s ground-breaking research into forestry and biodiversity conservation, together with environmental education for the protection and conservation of forest, its species and habitat.
Gordon Gibb, Chief Executive of Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, said, “Winning this award shows the value of university research for UK companies. This partnership has led to significant advances in biodiversity conservation and public awareness of the environment on a local, national and international scale.”
