BirdLife South Africa’s most prestigious award is the Gill Memorial Medal Award, which is awarded for outstanding lifetime contributions to ornithology (the study of birds) in southern Africa.
The inaugural award was presented to Jack Winterbottom in 1960, and the most recent recipient was Claire Spottiswoode (2019). The list of recipients includes a very renowned group of southern Africa’s distinguished ornithologists, including Philip Clancey, Roy Siegfried, Richard Brooke, Warwick Tarboton, Richard Dean, John Cooper and Adrian Craig.
BirdLife South Africa will send out an annual notification inviting and announcing the closing date for nominations for the Gill Memorial Medal Award each year.
