Doctor Bailey in the house
Posted by Bombyx Mori on October 14th, 2014
On Tuesday 14 October 2014, Bill was presented with an Honorary Doctorate of the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia.
An honorary award of Doctor of the University may be made to a person in recognition of excellence and extraordinary achievement in a significant area of human endeavour, and in Bill’s case, it was for his outstanding contribution to the environment on a global scale. Vice-Chancellor and President of the University, Professor Greg Hill said, “We believe Bill’s commitment to wildlife conservation and sustainability, particularly in Southeast Asia and Indonesia, demonstrates excellence and deserves recognition…So it’s a worthy cause for USC to be engaged with and it is also a wonderful platform for USC to engage with Bill Bailey.” Congratulations, BB.
