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 a 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.
Through the program, one state and one federal recipient will receive a check for $2,500 and a commemorative plaque in recognition of their efforts. In the event that a recipient cannot accept a cash award, as is the case for federal employees, a donation of $2,500 will be made in the recipient's name to the wildlife project(s) of his or her choice.
