BACKGROUND: In 1966, National Wildlife Federation harnessed that energy by organizing the first annual Conservation Achievement Awards Banquet, now famed as the “Connie” Awards--honoring individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting wildlife through education, advocacy, communication and on-the-ground conservation. Previous honorees have included actor Robert Redford, former Vice President Al Gore, former President Jimmy Carter and Bette Midler.
Now, 77 years since our founding, NWF gathers again in the spirit of conservation and bring together some of America’s greatest and most passionate advocates for wildlife to celebrate and honor today’s conservation heroes. For more information about NWF, please visit www.nwf.org
