Theodore Roosevelt Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient, Jim Kurth, Retires

On this date last year, the National Wildlife Refuge Association presented the Theodore Roosevelt Lifetime Achievement Award to Jim Kurth, Deputy Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. We are sad to learn that Jim will be stepping down from his role in the Fish and Wildlife Service after 41 years, effective June 1st.

Jim has been a colleague and a friend of ours in the Refuge Association for decades. His exemplary work has stretched across the Refuge System, from Alaska to Florida, and his wealth of knowledge is invaluable. He has been a mentor, a cheerleader, and a listening ear— never afraid to tell the truth. There is no else like him, and he will be greatly missed in his retirement. Read our press release on Jim’s Theodore Roosevelt Lifetime Achievement Award here. You can read his tribute in the Congressional Record from June 10th, 2019 here.
