Preston says we've really been overwhelmed with high quality proposals. That maybe has been one of the most exciting aspects of the Camp Monaco Prize. In both 2013 and 2016, we received around 20 applications. Almost all of them were of the highest quality. In both years there were at least five or six projects that were exciting and certainly worthy of funding and we could only fund one apiece. So we expect proposals of that level again from teams of scientists throughout the country, and in fact, throughout the world. He says Yellowstone scientists working with teams inside and outside the Park have applied in the past: very strong proposals. He says there is a reason the world looks to Yellowstone. It is truly a flagship for conservation and in many ways a proving ground for ideas for conservation. One of the things that sets it apart is that it's a broad area. Yellowstone National Park as the first National Park in the world really generates attention just for that, but we have in the Greater Yellowstone over the last several decades a recognition that Yellowstone National Park, for that matter Grand Teton and Yellowstone Parks together cannot contain, nor sustain its wildlife. So a conservation issue in Greater Yellowstone is not just about the protected areas themselves, but about how best to manage and steward lands around there, that supports the wildlife that moves back and forth. For that matter, there's a human equation here. It/s this human/wildland interface that makes Yellowstone so fascinating, and provides global implications for other conservation areas. Preston says the Buffalo Bill Center of the West is world reknowned, primarily for its history and its art, and for Buffalo Bill himself and the museum we have there. But, when I first came here in 1998 we didn't have a Draper Natural History Museum here. There was no reali science here. But, in the last 20 years, in concert with all the museums of the Center the Draper has helped develop the Center of the West as a go-to scientific resource and a place where we can conduct, and also stimulate further research into the biodiversity of Yellowstone. Preston says we don't know if Prince Albert II will be able to attend the awards ceremony in September of 2019 for the 2019 Camp Monaco Prize. He has some scheduling conflicts, but we are working with the Palace, and whether Prince Albert II will be able to attend, we will have a representative from the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
