A New Zealand where native wildlife live without fear of predators is the vision of one of the country’s foremost conservation scientists, who has been awarded the Marsden Medal for 2014 at a ceremony in Wellington.

Professor Mick Clout from the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Environment was jointly awarded the medal for his contribution to conservation biology and a lifetime’s work dedicated to studying the ecology of mammals and birds, including critically endangered species such as kakapo.

The award recognises outstanding achievement in science over the course of a distinguished career and is conferred by the New Zealand Association of Scientists.
