Environmental champions to be nominated for awards

Nominations are now open for the 2018 Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa’s (Wessa) annual awards.

These awards pay tribute to a wide range of outstanding environmental champions and will be presented at this year’s 92nd annual meeting on 15 September in Port Elizabeth.

The Wessa Awards, which have been presented since 1974, enable Wessa to recognise and honour those who have made a significant contribution to the environmental conservation or environmental education sector in South Africa, in a sustainable manner.

The goal is to give appropriate, high level recognition to people, groups or institutions for advancing the cause of environmental conservation and education in South Africa, and to provide an opportunity for Wessa to increase public awareness of local or national achievements in environmental conservation and education.
