Northern Beaches Council/MEC Eco Awards
Who will be our 2017 Eco Hero?
Nominations have closed for the 12th annual Manly Environment Centre’s Eco Award.
The prestigious Eco Award gives community members a chance to nominate their 'unsung environmental hero' - someone who deserves acknowledgment for their outstanding environmental and conservation work to protect our unique natural environment.
Last year's Eco Award was won by Sharnie Connell who has campaigned for the protection of marine life for many years, including spreading the message that “Healthy Oceans Need Sharks,” as well as working to rescue distressed and injured birds and animals.
Other winners include Peter Garrett in 2006 for his long-standing support of environmental issues and 2010 winner Brendan Donohoe, president of the Northern Beaches Surfrider Foundation, who has inspired many over the years to work alongside him in the pursuit of clean water and beach conservation.
The winner receives an original art work in addition to public recognition of their work and achievements. The awards will be presented at the end of March.
