Environmental Heroes from Around the World Honored

Six pioneering environmental initiatives and individuals, including a program to protect endangered parrots in Mexico, the first biologist to study seahorses under water and an organization that brings solar energy to rural areas of Africa, are the newest recipients of the annual Chevron Conservation Awards.

"It is our hope that by recognizing award-winning conservation efforts we educate and inspire others to preserve natural resources in all parts of the globe," said Rhonda Zygocki, vice president of Health, Environment and Safety for Chevron. "This starts with adhering to strong environmental values and putting them into practice through the power of partnerships."

The winners were selected by an independent panel of six conservationists. Each honoree received a US$15,000 cash prize at ceremonies at Chevron's global headquarters in San Ramon, California. Since its founding in 1954 by acclaimed outdoors writer Ed Zern, the Chevron Conservation Awards have honored more than 1,000 volunteers, professionals and organizations for their practical and creative solutions to environmental challenges.
