Each year the Pax Natura Foundation presents the Pax Natura Award to that individual
whose life work exemplifies the highest ideals of Peace with Nature. Through this acknowledgment, the Pax Natura Foundation hopes to focus local and international attention on those individuals whose vision and efforts have resulted in healing the division between the human community and the natural world. We welcome suggestions for possible recipients of the award from the local and international communities.
