Aug 30, 2014

The 2014 Kudu Awards, organised by South African National Parks (SANParks) in partnership with First National Bank (FNB) and Total South Africa, has extended the deadline for entries to 15 September 2014.

SANParks' Acting Head of Communications, Reynold Thakhuli said the Kudu Awards is SANParks' way of honouring and celebrating those people that go to any length to conserve and protect our natural environment and heritage for future generations.

The award is an initiative that aims to recognise external stakeholders for their contributions and efforts in making SANParks the custodian of choice for the national parks system in South Africa. “The Kudu Awards are becoming one of the best conservation awards programmes in the country in which a lot of companies, individuals as well as community groups enter to showcase their work around environment and conservation of natural resources.”

According to Thakhuli entering the awards programme holds real, tangible benefits for entrants. “In addition to receiving a thorough summary of all comments by judges, whether positive or negative, finalists and winners receive widespread exposure which gives them a definite competitive edge to their peers, particularly around their passion for our parks and all have a need to be recognised as the best in the conservation of our biodiversity.”

The awards are separated into the following six main categories:

  • Corporate contribution to conservation award,
  • Environmental media contribution to conservation award,
  • Community contribution to conservation
  • Environmental education/Capacity building award
  • Professional Stakeholders
  • Associated partners

The extended final date for entries is 15 September 2014.
