Celebrating 29 memorable years of the Conservation DistList
Long-standing moderator Walter Henry retires from role
The Conservation DistList will be experiencing a brief disruption in service in the last few weeks in August as long-term moderator Walter Henry retires from his role.
The Foundation for the American Institute of Conservation (FAIC) would like to thank Walter for his 29 years of work as a moderator, creating and growing the service to reach more than 12,886 subscribers today.
Since its inception in 1987, the Cons DistList has expanded to reach more than 101 countries, with the US having the highest number of subscribers, followed closely by the UK and Canada.
According to Walter, when the list sent out its first messages, "there were no museum or archive-oriented lists about conservation on the Internet."
Icon would like to thank Walter for his excellent work in developing such a rich and diverse source of conservation news. We look forward to receiving it for many years to come.
If you have any questions, or if you have any words of thanks to pass along to Walter, please feel free to contact FAIC Development Associate, Melissa Ezelle.
