Call for Nominations to Recognize Outstanding Lifetime Service for Wildlife Enforcement Officers

NFWF's Guy Bradley Award Honors State and Federal Agency Wildlife Enforcement Officers
Early American game warden Guy Bradley, who was killed in 1905 while attempting to stop a bird poacher near Flamingo, Florida.

Nominations are due by Friday, January 14th, 2022 by 11:59pm Eastern Time

In 1905, a Florida game warden named Guy Bradley became the first wildlife law enforcement agent killed while performing his duties to protect the nation’s wildlife. Law enforcement agents like Bradley are essential to virtually every aspect of wildlife conservation, from recovering endangered species to managing waterfowl and big game resources.  In honor of Guy Bradley, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation established this lifetime achievement award to recognize individuals for their commitment and performance in the field of wildlife law enforcement. 

The Guy Bradley Award will be presented to one state agency and one federal agency officer whose dedication and public service to protecting the nation's natural resources demonstrates outstanding leadership, excellence in implementation, knowledge, and actions that have advanced the cause of wildlife conservation.
