South African National Parks (SANParks) has extended the deadline for entries into the 6th Annual Kudu Awards, to Friday, 28 May 2010. This has been done to provide the prospective entrants sufficient time to compile the evidence required for their entries to the prestigious conservation awards.

The awards are divided into four different categories. The first being the Corporate Contribution to Conservation Award – this category recognises organisations/companies/persons that have made significant contributions to conservation, whether through the awarding of land, funds, human resources or have entered into a business relationship with SANParks. This award compromises of sets of awards: Business Partner of the Year (an internal award), Individual Contribution, Corporate Contribution – Profit Making Institutions as well as Corporate Contribution – Non Profit Making Institution.

The second award category is the Environmental Media Contribution to Conservation – this award is presented to conservation/environmental journalists/media entities that have been considered to have conducted their reporting in a socially responsible manner and have also given extensive and balanced reporting on conservation related matters. The award consists of two sets of categories: Best Journalist (Across of All Media) and Best Publication/Programme/Website/Documentary.

The third category looks at the Community Contribution to Conservation – this award is given to an individual/group/project that has advanced the cause of sustainable conservation of our biodiversity and cultural heritage. There are also two sets of awards in this category: Community Contributor to Conservation and the Honorary Ranger of the Year (an internal award).

The last category is Environmental Education/Capacity Building award – this award is given to an educator/group of educators who have contributed to educational programmes that further the conservation of our biodiversity and cultural heritage.
