The 2015 FFN Awards Ceremony
It was a spectacular Future For Nature Awards Ceremony in Royal Burgers’ Zoo, last Friday 27 February 2015. After a fabolous kick off from Saba Douglas-Hamilton, chairwoman of the International Selection Committee, an inspiring presentation from our ambassador Dr Freek Vonk, the three winners (our heroes) presented their work; Manoj Gautam (Nepal), José F. González-Maya (Costa Rica) and Karen Allen (South-Africa). They each received our international prize of €50,000 for their vital work. Our Guest of Honour Professor David Macdonalds’ speech was impressive. How nice and inspiring to have all these committed and passionate persons in the house.
