Nature NL recognizes Newfoundlanders and Labradorians that contribute to the protection of our natural history and demonstrate an active commitment to our environment.


Tuck Walters Award

This award is named in memory of Dr. Leslie M. Tuck and Captain Harry Walters. Dr. Les Tuck was Newfoundland’s first Dominion Wildlife Officer, and Harry Walters was the Director of the Newfoundland Rangers Force.  Walters and Tuck were instrumental in establishing our province’s first seabird reserves and the former Avalon Wilderness Area. Their combined efforts put natural history awareness, protection and appreciation on a solid footing in Newfoundland and Labrador. Learn more about the award and past recipients here
