Do you know someone who deserves acknowledgment for their outstanding environmental and conservation achievements to protect the Northern Beaches unique natural environment?

Northern Beaches Council is seeking nominations of community members who have volunteered their time and effort to enhance the region’s diverse and valuable, natural habitat.

The Northern Beaches Eco Awards (formerly the Manly Environment Centre Eco Awards) are now in their 13th year and are open to anyone over 18 years of age. People can be nominated in the following categories: Bushland, Oceans, Waterways and Biodiversity.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan encouraged the community to get involved.

“Anyone who is doing exceptional work to preserve the natural environment deserves recognition, so we would like to receive their nomination.”

Last year’s Eco Award was won by Belinda Elworthy from Plastic Free Northern Beaches who worked hard to raise awareness about the impact of plastic pollution on the marine environment.

This year’s winner will receive an original artwork as well as public recognition for their work and achievements.

Previous winners include Midnight Oil front man and former federal parliamentarian Peter Garrett, Northern Beaches Surfrider Foundation president, Brendan Donohue, and Angelika Treichler, who was the force behind the “Penguin Wardens”, a group she formed to protect Manly’s Little Penquins.

In 2017, a record 34 nominations were received for this prestigious community focussed award.

Nomination forms are available on Council’s website. The deadline for applications is 5pm, Monday 1 October.
