The AWF Governor’s Conservation Achievement Awards (GCAA) are the most respected conservation honors in the state of Alabama. Over the past 40 years, AWF has presented these awards to individuals and organizations that make great contributions to the conservation of Alabama’s wildlife and related natural resources.

Senator Chambliss is an outdoorsman and conservationists, and serves on the Senate Agriculture and Forestry Committee. Since his election in 2014, he has become known in the Senate for his thorough review and study of issues, open lines of communication, and practical approach.
 
Senator Chambliss evaluates and takes action each year on dozens of conservation, forest and wildlife management, hunting, angling, and outdoor related legislation. AWF’s mission is to promote the wise-use and responsible stewardship of our wildlife, forests, fish, water, and soils by striking the balance between use, management, and protection of those resources. That same fundamental approach is shared by Senator Chambliss and is evident through his open lines of communication, willingness to receive and study information about the positive and negative aspects associated with individual legislation, and his thoughtful evaluation and action as a result.
 
Most importantly, Senator Chambliss understands that we all have a role in perpetuating the natural resources and outdoor pursuits we are blessed with in Alabama, and is willing to make and foster decisions in their best, long-term interest.
