Luc Hoffmann honoured for his life's work as a conservationist

The 2007 Environmental Award of the European Nature Heritage Fund goes to Switzerland's Luc Hoffmann in recognition of his life's work as a prominent nature conservationist and nature heritage patron.
Luc Hoffmann was a co-founder of the WWF in 1961, Vice President of the World Conservation Union IUCN, and active in many other nature conservation organisations. Today he heads his own Fund, the MAVA Foundation for Nature Conservation, and continues to travel the world on behalf of nature conservation. According to the award presentation Luc Hoffmann is to be honoured in particular for his efforts aimed at preserving biodiversity, an issue very close to his heart. The natural alpine environment has already benefited in many ways from Hoffmann's commitment.
Past recipients of the Euronatur Environmental Award include Klaus Töpfer, Mikhail Gorbachev and Nelson Mandela. The Euronatur Award for Environmental Excellence is a non-monetary prize; it pays tribute to outstanding achievements on behalf of nature conservation.
