2016: Clark R. Bavin Wildlife Law Enforcement Award

The Hindu, September 23, 2016

Two Indian forest officials have been selected for the 2016 Clark R. Bavin Wildlife Law Enforcement Awards that honour individuals engaging in exemplary law enforcement actions to protect wildlife.

“Range officer Sanjay Dutta of Belakoba Forest Range Jalpaiguri in West Bengal and Assistant Conservator Ritesh Sarothiya of Madhya Pradesh State Forest Service have been selected as winners of the Bavin Awards,” President Cathy Liss of Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) in Washington, D.C., U.S., said in an email.

The U.S.-based Species Survival Network, in cooperation with the AWI, coordinates the presentation of the awards.

The honour is named in memory of Bavin, the late Chief of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service’s Division of Law Enforcement. Bavin pioneered the highly effective use of covert investigations and ‘sting’ operations to uncover illegal wildlife trade.
