Prof Sarah Wanless receives the Godman Salvin Medal from BOU President, Prof Keith Hamer, at the BOU’s 2015 annual conference.

“Everyone who knows Sarah can testify to her total commitment not only to research, but to the people around her. She is an outstanding ornithologist who has made step changes in our understanding of the anthropogenic drivers of seabird populations, and she is an inspiring colleague and mentor. For her huge contribution to research and education, she is fully deserving of the award of the Godman Salvin Medal.”
