Call for Nominations: 2018 Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa (WESSA) Awards

Deadline: 31 July 2018

Nominations are open for the 2018 Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa (WESSA) Annual Awards.

Goals

The goals of the WESSA Awards are as follows:

  • To give appropriate, high level recognition to people, groups or institutions for advancing the cause of environmental conservation and/or education in South Africa in an exceptional and sustained manner.
  • To provide an opportunity for WESSA to increase public awareness of local or national achievements in environmental conservation and/or education.

Award Categories

  • WESSA Award For Individuals
    • This is WESSA’s premier award to an individual. The person nominated must be considered to have made an outstanding contribution to environmental conservation and/or education in South Africa over a sustained period of time and at a national level. “Outstanding contribution” in this context is understood to be a contribution over and above what would normally be expected from their work.
  • WESSA Award For Youth
    • Youth are increasingly taking on environmental issues and making them their life’s work. In the Youth Award category WESSA would like to acknowledge a young person, under the age of 35 years, who has committed him or herself to environmental conservation and/or education. This individual should be making an “outstanding contribution” that is having positive outcomes at a national level.
  • WESSA Award For Corporates
    • This award is made to corporations or institutions for outstanding contributions to environmental conservation and/or education in South Africa over a sustained period of time and at a national level.
  • WESSA Award For Groups
    • This award is made to any group of volunteers (e.g. community, educational, environmental) who have done outstanding work for the benefit of environmental conservation and/or education over a sustained period of time. Such contribution could be in their local area, but should be of a national significance or be able to be replicated nationally.

Criteria

In general, the main criterion for all the WESSA Awards is as follows:

  • Any individual, corporate/organisation, community group, educational group, conservation or environmental group who have done outstanding and sustained work for the benefit of environmental conservation and/or education in South Africa.
