Created in 1995, the International Award of Excellence in Conservation is presented to honor individuals and organizations that exemplify the ideals expressed in BRIT’s mission. Honorees include scientists, conservationists, heads of state, philanthropists, Pulitzer Prize winners, politicians, and other notables.

Through the education of our supporters, BRIT has added to the global efforts to save the diminishing resources of our planet.
