Updated Flag Application Criteria

Updated Flag Application Criteria

Greetings Fellow Explorers,

I am writing to update you on a recent change to the Flag Application Criteria.

At the last Board of Directors meeting it was decided that the following requirements should be met in order to to carry a flag on an expedition related to conservation.
Flag requests that have an objective of conserving natural resources must adhere to the following requirements:

  • MUST have new or novel hypothesis that is being explored, with goals to find new solutions to conservation, challenges, and scientific questions
  • Must include field research and the dissemination of knowledge

The applicant should understand that conservation related expeditions will not automatically be approved based on the overall objective alone. The application must demonstrate that a new approach to conservation will be undertaken.

If you have any questions regarding this change, please don’t hesitate to contact me  at bobalinc1@hotmail.com.

Best Regards,

Robert J. Atwater
Vice President for Flag & Honors
