10 Mar 2020, 1:44 PM

Time is running out for Northland’s environmental champions to put their names forward to be recognised for the work they do to protect and enhance the region’s environment.

The Northland Regional Council’s 2020 Environmental Awards are designed to recognise and celebrate kaitiakitanga in action and highlight the ‘can-do’ attitudes and remarkable contributions – many of them behind the scenes – that help our environment thrive.

The inaugural awards were held last year attracting more than 90 nominations for eight award categories covering a broad range of environmental enhancement projects and activities.

Nominations for this year’s awards opened in mid-February and close Sunday 22 March.

Entries and nominations can be made via www.nrc.govt.nz/environmentalawards and further information is available from the council’s marketing and engagement team [email protected] or freephone (0800) 002 004.
