Carla Dove Receives Lifetime Achievement Award from Bird Strike Committee USA

Recommended Posts

At their August 2021 meeting, the Bird Strike Committee USA presented a Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. Carla Dove in appreciation of her contribution to the bird strike community. BSC created the award in 1992 and only seven people have since received the honor.

Carla’s accomplishments over over her career include over 40 peer reviewed publications, countless professional documents and reports, and a commitment to teaching and mentoring. In addition, she and her colleagues have established the Smithsonian Feather Identification Lab as a world-renowned resource for bird strikes and ornithology. 

The inscription on the award reads "For your incomparable commitment benefitting U.S. and International aviation safety. Your expertise and exceptional leadership of the Feather Identification Laboratory have provided the foundation for an unparalleled investigative science that will continue to benefit the world's civil / military aviation and wildlife alike."
