ASOC is so proud that our founder and board chair Jim Barnes received a Packard Award from the World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA) this week. Jim received the award for “his lifelong dedication to the protection and preservation of Antarctica, the world’s last great wilderness.” You can read more about the award and watch the ceremony here or read Jim’s remarks here.
