SERVENTY CONSERVATION MEDAL
The Wildlife Preservation Society of Australia created the Serventy Conservation Medal in honour of three members of the Serventy Family:
Our intention is to award the medal to those who labour as a volunteer in the conservation field for a love of nature and a determination that it should be conserved.
The decision on the granting of each year's medal will be decided by a full meeting of the Council of the Wildlife Preservation Society of Australia.
COMMUNITY WILDLIFE CONSERVATION AWARD
The Wildlife Preservation Society is also calling for nominations for the Community Wildlife Conservation Award that will be awarded to a community conservation group that is making a major contribution to wildlife preservation in Australia.
The WPSA knows that many organisations and thousands of volunteers are already working tirelessly to save our threatened species as well as the humble and more common Australian species and the precious wildlife habitat in which they live.
We are all aware of the wonderful work being carried out by volunteers across the country in saving our sick and injured wildlife. They spend many hours and days caring for a single animal that has been injured by a car, savaged by a feral animal or hurt in bush fires. We want to recognise and help these conservation groups continue with their good work on behalf of the whole community.
Our Society will present a plaque and a cash award of $5,000 to the winning conservation group that is helping to save our precious Australian wildlife.
Nominations for the Serventy Conservation Medal should be made in writing to be received by our Society by 19 December 2008. Nominations for the Community Wildlife Conservation Award can be made in writing to be received by our Society by 31 December 2008.
Nominations forms can be downloaded from our website at www.wpsa.org.au. Completed nomination forms can be sent to the Wildlife Preservation Society by email to email@example.com, or mailed to PO Box 42 Brighton Le Sands NSW 2216.
