Future For Nature (FFN) 2022 Awards for Young Nature Conservationists

Brief Description: The Future For Nature Foundation (FFN) supports young, talented, and ambitious nature conservationists committed to protecting species of wild animals and plants. The Foundation believes in the power of the individual. Therefore, it selects a new generation of nature conservationists who we believe make a difference in the future of nature. Natural leaders who inspire and with their drive and ‘stubbornness’ achieve impressive results. Annually, the Foundation put three of these promising young people in the spotlight.
