Introducing this year’s Beluga Award winner, Dr. Ruth Jackson! Ruth is a Scientist Emerita and Arctic researcher with Natural Resources Canada. Although Ruth retired from the Geological Survey of Canada – Atlantic in 2009, she is still contributing to ongoing research at BIO and can be seen regularly at BIO.
Ruth is particularly engaged in the preparation of Canada’s United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) Arctic Submission. Over the past four decades, Ruth has made contributions to many BIO projects and programs. Today, Ruth’s contributions to BIO are visible through the new unique outreach display in BIO’s main courtyard, the Bernard Pelletier Fossil Forest. This display communicates the concepts of evolution, Arctic geology and climate change in an experiential exhibit.
As a result of Ruth’s efforts and dedication to BIO and its community, we are proud to recognize Ruth as this year’s recipient of the Beluga Award. Please join us for the ceremony to celebrate Dr. Ruth Jackson as the 2019 Beluga Award recipient.
