Young Conservationist Award 2008

Top Tier Portraits

Once again, IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas and International Rangers Federation were very fortunate to have excellent applicants for the award and felt contenders fully met all the criteria that such an award requires.

Following an in-depth selection process, only one recipient was chosen as the winner 2008. Nevertheless, 4 others candidates made the top tier. We’d like to acknowledge their hard work on this occasion.

  • Alasdair Harris
  • Nathan Males
  • Kifa Sasa Marín
  • Dawa Steven Sherpa 

Their self-sacrifice, engagement towards the conservation of Protected Areas and passion to preserve natures beauty are described in the attached downloads

The Young Conservationist Award is a joint initiative launched by IUCN’s World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA) and the IRF.

In 2004, WCPA and IRF signed a Memorandum of Understanding to promote collaboration on protected areas and the rangers responsible for their protection.
