We have initiated a Waterberg Conservationist of the Year award and ask that you nominate candidates (whether WNC members or not) for what we hope will become a prestigious and sought-after accolade. The successful candidate will be an influential advocate for conservation and an important example for others to follow.
Nominees should demonstrate unusual concern for the environment through their operations, policies and actions. Other criteria include the following:
- The candidate is a permanent resident of the Waterberg;
- The candidate has incorporated effective conservation principles into his / her normal land management;
- The candidate is supportive of formal conservation programmes, even though he or she might not be a high-profile active participant;
- The candidate displays a high level of responsibility for both the natural and social environment in which we live.
