WWF to honour murdered conservationist Glen Davis

The World Wildlife Fund Canada will create a new $10,000 conservation award in honour of Glen Davis. The conservationist was shot dead in the parking garage on the southeast corner of Mt. Pleasant and Eglinton Ave E in 2007 by a gunman acting on behalf of Davis’s cousin Marshall Ross, a trusted godson and heir of Glen Davis. The motive was money. The award will be named the Glen Davis Conservation Leadership Prize and will be given for the first time in May, 10 years after the Canadian businessman was murdered at age 66. WWF says the award will help “a worthy candidate do things such as pay the rent and buy groceries, recognizing that conservation activists often experience financial hardship in order to do what they do.”
