43 excellent nominations were received this year for the Mayoral Conservation Awards, says Auckland Council, demonstrating the determination and tenacity of Aucklanders to protect and restore our natural environment regardless of the challenges. I’ve been incredibly inspired to see the extent of conservation mahi by dedicated community members across Tāmaki Makaurau,” says Councillor Pippa Coom. The winners of each category and the Penny Hulse Supreme Environment Award will be announced at the online ceremony on Thursday 25 November, 6-8pm.
