The Glossy Black Conservancy relies on the combined efforts of its various members and friends to achieve its aims, although there are certain individuals who make significant contributions towards completing priority actions or promoting the conservation of the species in general.
The award was originally presented in 2009 by the Glossy Black Conservancy by way of recognising the outstanding contributions of key individuals.
The award is now allocated annually by vote at the Conservancy’s end of year general meeting and is open to all Partners, Friends and the general community.
