Dallas, TX -(Ammoland.com)- Nominations are being accepted through July 30 for a prestigious award that recognizes significant contributions to wildlife and habitat conservation, as well as sustained commitment to the heritage of hunting.

The Peter Hathaway Capstick Hunting Heritage Award is the top conservation and service award given by the Dallas Safari Club (DSC) and Dallas Ecological Foundation.

“If you’re a hunter, you probably know someone who deserves special recognition for their efforts in conservation. There are thousands of sportsmen, women and organizations playing major roles in keeping America’s wildlife populations strong and habitats healthy. We’d like to hear their stories,” said Ben Carter, DSC executive director.

DSC will present the award during its annual convention and expo, Jan. 15-18, 2015, in Dallas.

The Capstick Award is named for the well-known American author whose defense of hunting and conservation made him a household name. Capstick’s widow, Fiona Claire, remains a DSC life member and is involved in award presentations. Recipients are selected based on their involvement in education, hunting, conservation organizations, humanitarian causes, research, permanent endowments and/or charitable giving. Criteria are summarized as follows:

“The objective of this award is to bring honor and recognition to an individual, organization or group whose achievements reveal a sustained and significant contribution to the conservation of wildlife and its habitat. Additionally, the winner will have shown long-term commitment to our hunting heritage by pursuing that goal for the benefit of future generations.”

Nominations can be made via mail or e-mail (info@biggame.org). Send to Dallas Safari Club, 13709 Gamma Rd., Dallas, TX, 75244, USA.

Previous recipients include John and Chrissie Jackson of Conservation Force, Christiane Underberg of Rheinberg, Germany; Harry Tennison of Fort Worth, Texas; the late Baron Bertrand des Clers of France; President Theodore Roosevelt (posthumously); Dr. Ian Player of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa; Boone and Crockett Club; Hubert Thummler of Mexico City; and Dan Pedrotti of Corpus Christi, Texas.
