Natural Heritage New Mexico (NHNM) received the 2013 Conservation Impact Award recently at the NatureServe network's annual Biodiversity Without Boundaries conference in Baltimore. The award honors recent accomplishments by NHNM, a division of the University of New Mexico's Museum of Southwestern Biology and the UNM Department of Biology. NHNM is one of three members of the NatureServe network whose achievements earned the recognition from their peers this year.

"I congratulate Natural Heritage New Mexico on earning the 2013 Conservation Impact Award," said Mary Klein, president and CEO of NatureServe. "This accolade recognizes their demonstrated leadership as a regional provider of scientific knowledge and expertise, but they have also set an important example by establishing effective cost-sharing agreements with state and federal agencies. This approach enhances the profile of the entire NatureServe network as a go-to source for conservation science information."
