The national award recognizes a Service employee’s outstanding practice and support of scientific activities that improve the bureau’s knowledge and management of fish and wildlife resources.

Dr. Williams served as the Assistant Deputy Branch Director for Wildlife Response - Houma Sector of the Deepwater Horizon Spill and as Branch Director and Deputy Branch Director for Wildlife and Environmental Assessment for the Michigan Enbridge Line 6B Pipeline Spill, the nation’s largest inland oil spill.
