Kurt Buhlmann, senior research associate at the University of Georgia Savannah River Ecology Laboratory, received the Visionary Leader Award from Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation. The award is given to an individual in North America who demonstrates extraordinary leadership, vision and commitment while furthering the mission of the organization. Buhlmann has been involved in the growth of the organization since its founding in 1999, and instrumental in developing habitat management guidelines to aid landowners in management practices compatible with amphibian and reptile conservation.
