2 Lady Scientists Get Environmental Award from DoST


Byline: MADEL R. SABATER

Two female scientists, both achievers in the academe and government service, are this year's recipients of an environmental award from the National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) for their significant works on conservation, rehabilitation and preservation of the country's marine resources.

The NAST is an agency of the Department of Science and Technology (DoST) headed by Secretary Estrella Alabastro.

At the awarding ceremonies of the 7th NAST - Hugh Greenwood Environmental Science Award held yesterday at the Heritage Hotel in Pasay City, NAST vice president Ledivina Carino said this is the first time they are giving the award to two individuals.

It is also the first time the NAST conferred the award to a scientist outside of Metro Manila.

The NAST--Hugh Greenwood Environmental Science Award, which usually coincides with the Earth Day celebration, is given in recognition of outstanding specific and technological works that contribute to environmental protection and conservation.

This year's awardees are marine biologist Dr. Marie Antonette Menez of the University of the Philippines- Diliman Marine Science Institute (UP-MSI), and ecologist Dr. Paciencia Milan, president of the Leyte State University (LSU).

Dr. Menez won the prestigious award for her coastal ecosystem management and governance.

"Through her work in the biology, ecology and culture of commercially important invertebrates, she has demonstrated that the convergence of good scientific understanding with appropriate extension work of committed workers translate to community involvement and successful recovery of depleted stocks," NAST said.

It added, "Her innovative interdisciplinary researches in population genetics have shown the impact of ecological processes in the contentious area of marine biodiversity."

Prior to her environmental award, Menez was also a recipient of the Ten Outstanding Women in the Nation's Service (TOWNS); Outstanding Young Scientist (OYS); Gawad Chanselor (GC) Award for Extension Services; and the UP Scientific Productivity Award.
