DUC research scientist honoured by Lake Winnipeg Foundation
Oak Hammock Marsh, Man. – Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) is proud to announce that Dr. Pascal Badiou, research scientist with the Institute for Wetlands and Waterfowl Research, has received the 2014 Alexander Bajkov Award from the Lake Winnipeg Foundation.
Named in memory of pioneering fisheries biologist Alexander Bajkov (1894-1955), this award was created by the foundation to be presented to individuals who are dedicated to the understanding of Lake Winnipeg, and who demonstrate outstanding efforts to protect and restore the health of the lake and its watershed.
Dr. Badiou is currently leading a number of studies that examine the impacts of wetland loss across the Prairies. His research is highly regarded by government decision-makers and the results from his work are a crucial part of Manitoba’s policy work that led to the recently proposed regulations on drainage.
An award presentation was held May 5, 2015 at the foundation’s annual general meeting.
“As a researcher, as a collaborator, as a teacher and as an individual, Dr. Badiou’s credibility and integrity speak volumes,” says foundation executive director Alexis Kanu. “When Pascal speaks, we should all listen.”
