DELETE MEMORIAL SCHOLARS 19-20



WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

This year, we received highly competitive applications from across Nepal.

WWF, the global conservation organization leading international efforts for a living planet, instituted the WWF Conservation Awards in 1995 to recognize and honor individuals and organizations at the grassroots level that have made significant contributions to protect Nepal's rich biodiversity. 

 
Every year, WWF welcomes nominations for the WWF Nepal Conservation Awards from Nepali individuals and/or organizations registered in Nepal and are working in the field of conservation and natural resource management. The nominations will need to reflect illustrious accomplishments and innovations in the areas of biodiversity conservation, addressing climate change and pollution, sustainable development, environment education, policy and advocacy, media and journalism, participatory conservation, and other related fields. 
 
Up to three recipients of the Conservation Awards are selected from the nominations received by an independent selection panel that comprises of an eminent group of experts from diverse sectors.
