Jean Thomas was our award-winner in 2010.  She received the Future For nature Award for her work for the Tenkile Conservation Alliance in Papua New Guinea, which links conservation of the rainforest with educating, supporting and empowering local communities.

Bronwyn Maree, award-winner in 2014: “My approach with albatross conservation in the Albatross Task Force (ATF) in South Africa is to use this amazing, iconic species to inspire fishing industries to change.

And at the very first award event in 2008, we met Charudutt Mishra. He won the FFN-award for being the founder of the Nature Conservation Foundation, an NGO established to promote science-based wildlife conservation in India. He has been working in villages at high altitude in the Himalayas, just south of Ladakh, to address the problems of declining wild prey and human incursion which are threatening the snow leopard.
