Dr. Goodall Honored with TheDailyGreen.com’s Lifetime Achievement Award
Early this week, we received word that Dr. Goodall was selected as TheDailyGreen.com’s recipient of the 2011 Heart of Green Award for Lifetime Achievement! The 2011 Heart of Green Awards honor the people, places and companies that take green to “heart,” furthering the cause of bringing “real green to real people.”
Dr. Goodall has been awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award in both the Editor’s Choice and People’s Choice categories for her work on behalf of conservation. “And her work through the Jane Goodall Institute and as a UN Messenger of Peace has helped secure protection for critically endangered animals, often across borders and in war zones,” added Dan Shapley, senior editor of TheDailyGreen.com.
In selecting this year’s award winners, the editors of TheDailyGreen.com considered the nominees’ impact over the last year, as well as their success in reaching a mainstream audience with a green message. For the People’s Choice category, more than 20,000 Heart of Green audience members voted for their favorite nominees in 18 categories, from best city to local hero. Additional winners include Matt Damon for Greenest Celebrity of the Year; New York City for Greenest City; and Cahuenga Peak, Los Angeles, California, for Best New Park.
