Peace Parks Foundation is the delighted winner of a South African National Parks (SANParks) Kudu Award.
Said Glenn Phillips acting SANParks CEO, “The Kudu has for the last 10 years recognised external stakeholders for their contribution and internal stakeholders for their efforts in making SANParks the custodian of choice for the national parks system. Through these awards people are being honoured for their meaningful contributions to the protection of the environment through various means which reflects society’s admirable social responsibility. This gives meaning to the SANParks vision of ‘A Sustainable National Parks System Connecting Society.'”
Christian des Closières MD & CEO of Total South Africa said, “Total South Africa is proud to partner with SANParks in celebrating the 2014 Kudu Awards which acknowledges and celebrates the brave and pioneering people who ensure that conservation remains a priority and who remind and inspire us – through their work – of just how important it is that we all care for the natural world”.
This is the first time Peace Parks Foundation receives a Kudu Award. The foundation won the Corporate Contribution to Conservation Award (Associated Partner).
Peace Parks Foundation CEO Werner Myburgh said: “This is a tremendous honour for Peace Parks Foundation. Transfrontier conservation development has always been an exemplary process of partnerships and SANParks and Peace Parks Foundation have been jointly developing TFCAs for many years. We deeply appreciate the award and the recognition and we look forward to continue working with SANParks on TFCAs and on rhino protection.”
