Celebrating South Africans doing extra-ordinary work for the environment.
WWF’s Living Planet Award is awarded annually to inspiring South African individuals and organisations making a significant contribution to ensuring an equitable and sustainable South Africa in which people and nature thrive.
Known today as the Living Planet Award, this prestigious WWF award was first issued in 1981. It was introduced to recognise the commendable contributions of South Africans who inspire people to live in harmony with nature for the benefit of our country and the wellbeing of all.
Trustees, board members and senior staff of WWF South Africa may nominate candidates for the award. Key criteria are contributing significantly and tangibly to addressing the country’s most pressing environmental challenges, innovative and catalytic environmental interventions, enhancement of WWF’s mission in South Africa and exhibiting the potential to leverage further environmental achievements. The WWF board is responsible for the final selection of winners.
