Finalists have been announced for the United Nations Association of Australia 2013 World Environment Day Awards (World Environment Day is 5 June).

Our local federal member Peter Garrett nominated Friends of Malabar Headland for the Prime Minister’s Environmentalist of the Year Award category.

FoMH did not reach the finals. However we congratulate the finalists. There are outstanding entries in numerous categories and they demonstrate the range of positive environmental action and initiative taking place in Australian communities, schools, businesses, engineering projects and a great diversity of urban and rural landscapes – see World Environment Day Awards finalists.

Thanks for the nomination Peter.
