About the Award

The journey for all great conservationists starts with a passion for the environment and a desire to do something to protect it. Follow in the footsteps of Dr Les Hall and make a difference in your local environment!

Les was a man of action. A forward-thinking man with a vision for a better future for our wildlife and the passion and drive to get on the ground and make that vision a reality. In recognition of what he achieved in the field of wildlife conservation, this award will recognise an individual or group that has shown vision, innovation and passion and has achieved an outstanding outcome for wildlife conservation on the Sunshine Coast.

This award aims to encourage youth to take an active role in conservation, increase awareness of threats in the region and demonstrate the power and innovation of students to make a difference for Australia’s native wildlife.
