  Mr. NEGUSE. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor the achievements of 
my constituent Dr. Larry Clark who the Federal Laboratory Consortium 
recently recognized as the Lab Director of the Year out of over 300 
federal labs nationwide.
   Dr. Clark is currently the Director of the National Wildlife 
Research Center in Fort Collins, Colorado. Through his work, Dr. Clark 
has made a number of breakthroughs in understanding how our nation's 
wildlife interacts with society and how these interactions can be 
improved. As a result of his work, numerous groups in both the public 
and private sectors have been able to make changes that mitigate their 
environmental impact.
   At a time when our country faces enormous challenges related to our 
changing climate, it is critical that we understand how our decisions 
impact the creatures in the world around us. A better understanding of 
these effects allows us to minimize the impacts of human activity on 
the world which we all share.
   Dr. Clark's tireless dedication to scientific exploration and 
excellence allows Americans to live in peace with the species that 
share our world with us. For this reason, I would like to thank him and 
all those working at the National Wildlife Research Center for all that 
they do for our nation.
