Nominate your unsung 'eco-hero'

By Northern Beaches Council
Posted: 14 Feb 2021
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 regions diverse and valuable, natural habitat.

The Northern Beaches Eco Awards for 2021 are open to people from all walks of life.

People can be nominated in the following award categories: Caring for our Bushland, Caring for our Waterways, Caring for our Coast, Caring for our Native Animals, Sustainable Resource Management Award and a Sustainability & Climate Change Award.

Individual Achievement Awards will be presented in two categories: Youth and Lifetime.

Mayor Michael Regan encouraged the community to get involved.

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

Previous winners of the Northern Beaches Eco Awards were Jude Furniss and Rowan Hanly.

Both Ms Furniss and Ms Hanly, volunteers with Surfrider Northern Beaches, were recognised for their extraordinary work reducing plastic pollution along the peninsula.

To qualify for entry, work must have been carried out in the Northern Beaches local government area in the past 2 years, except for the Individual Achievement Award (Lifetime Achievement) which recognises work over 25 years.

More information about the award categories can be found on Council's website along with the nomination form. Applications open 12 February and close 5pm 26 March.
