A new national awards scheme for projects which benefit
conservation has been launched.
The $90,000 WWF-New Zealand Conservation Innovation Awards
aim to showcase novel and effective ways to support
communities to protect and restore biodiversity.
First prize in each of three categories - product, project
and research - is a $25,000 grant, with three runner-up
grants of $5000 each.
Entries close on September 30 and winners will be announced
at an event in Conservation Week, in November.
