Anthony Waldron and his co-authors from England, Canada and the USA were awarded an inaugural Conservation Medal by the RSPB. The award was given in the category Important Conservation Paper, for the study “Targeting global conservation funding to limit immediate biodiversity declines”, published in PNAS in 2013.
