This award is given annually to acknowledge an individual or group that has made an extraordinary voluntary contribution to protecting Australia's natural environment at a grassroots level. Winners receive a $3,000 prize and memento and are chosen based on the significance of the issues addressed, the outcomes, the degree of difficulty in achieving them, and the level of personal commitment involved.
