Honouring outstanding persons and institutions in the field of biodiversity
The environmental award KfW-Bernhard-Grzimek-Preis connects the lifetime achievement of the conservationist Bernhard Grzimek to the issue of biodiversity and the preservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora – an issue that has reached an alarming level all around the world.
The environmental award KfW-Bernhard-Grzimek-Preis honours people and organisations who have distinguished themselves in their outstanding endeavour to preserve biodiversity. Their creativity, energy and innovation, their entrepreneurship and leadership vastly contributes to a wider awareness in society of both challenges and possible ways of protecting wildlife.
The award and prize money of 50,000 euros was presented for the first time in 2013.
