The NSW Government’s program committed to securing the future of threatened species across the state is supporting our Conservationist of the Year Award in 2018.

The Saving Our Species (SOS) program is the NSW Government’s commitment to saving those animals and plants at risk of extinction across the state. The Government has invested $100 million over five years into the program – making it the largest conservation program of its kind in Australia.

The Saving Our Species program is working to save plants and animals across NSW through practical, on-ground conservation actions. Projects are currently in place for hundreds of threatened species including the koala, a variety or rare orchids, the southern corrobboree frog, wollemi pine and the glossy-black cockatoo.

This year, we’re pleased to announce the Saving Our Species program is sponsoring the Australian Geographic Society’s 2018 Conservationist of the Year Award, which recognises Australians with a passion for conservation who have shown an outstanding contribution to protecting our natural heritage.

The AGS Conservationist of the Year 2018 will be announced at our annual awards ceremony on Thursday, 25 October, along with the winners of the other categories, all of which celebrate the exemplary achievements of Australians in both conservation and adventure.
