Ecology Action Centre's Sunshine Award = RAM

"Ransom Myers Even after his death, Ram's work is coming out in Science and Nature. Just like the sun - Ram's impact on the world will take a while to set. Ram was never afraid to speak his mind and to work on things that were important for marine conservation. Ram was almost always happy and despite the magnitude of the problems he worked on, he always saw solutions. Ram was a great naturalist in that he loved the outdoors, loved asking questions and had a great appreciation for the work the natural environment did for us humans. Ram's science fundamentally changed fisheries science, raised very important marine conservation issues and really did make a difference in marine policy and law, particularly the work he and others did on shark bycatch in the pelagic longline fishery."
