Nominations for this year’s Mayoral Conservation Awards are now open.

The awards recognise the outstanding contribution made by mana whenua, communities, landowners, youth and schools across Tāmaki Makaurau to care for and restore our region's environment.

Auckland Mayor Phil Goff says it’s inspiring to see the work being done for the environment by volunteers across Auckland.

“Volunteers and community groups play a critical conservation role across the region — restoring streams, trapping pests, planting trees and more,” he says.

“The Mayoral Conservation Awards are an opportunity to recognise and celebrate these unsung heroes who are working hard to protect and improve our environment.”

Nominations are open until Wednesday 4 November.

This year, the awards ceremony is part of the first day of the Auckland Pestival Weekend 2020 on Saturday 28 November at the Hyundai Marine Sports Centre. It’s the first day of a two-day CitiSci conservation forum that continues Sunday 29 November at the University of Auckland’s School of Environment Science Centre.
