The organisation had the following to say on their website:

‘The Rhino Conservation Awards have broadened their focus from rhino conservation to endangered species conservation. The primary objective of the awards is to give recognition to the leading role players in endangered species conservation and in doing so raise awareness of their amazing work.

‘Often facing physical danger, political opposition and severe financial constraints, this selfless group of conservationists continue to work to save Africa’s natural heritage. The awards serve to motivate these dedicated men and women to keep fighting to ensure the survival of our endangered species for the benefit of this and future generations.

The Rhino Conservation Awards welcome members of the public, non-profits, individuals within conservation organisations and governmental entities across Africa to submit their nominations for these prestigious awards to recognise outstanding conservation work in their sector. 

To nominate an individual or team, find the entry form here.
