WESSA Annual Awards
Nominations for the 2016 Awards are now open!
The WESSA Awards, which have been presented since 1974, enable WESSA to recognise and honour individuals and groups who have made a significant contribution to the environmental conservation or environmental education sector in South Africa over the past year in an exceptional and sustained manner.
The Awards are presented in three categories:
- WESSA’s Award for Individuals
- WESSA’s Award for Corporates
- WESSA’s Award for Groups
The Awards may be given to any individual, corporate/organisation, community group, educational group, conservation or environmental group of volunteers who have done outstanding work in their local community for the benefit of environmental conservation or education.
This year, in celebration of 90 years of Caring for the Earth, we are presenting a unique opportunity to acknowledge 90 living individuals who have dedicated their lives to conservation in South Africa through the introduction of the very special 90 Lifetime Conservation Achiever Awards category.
The 2016 Awards will be presented at a special ceremony at WESSA's 90th AGM to be held in Kruger National Park on Saturday 17 September.
