Every year Wildlife Queensland recognises the achievements and efforts of its members through a special awards ceremony held in September.

The awards categories are:

  1. A new and successful Wildlife Queensland campaign in your region
  2. A new or ongoing Wildlife Queensland project involving the community
  3. The Margaret Thorsborne Award for outstanding contribution by a member.


The third award, named in honour of our patron, Margaret Thorsborne, acknowledges members who have made an outstanding contribution to the Society, conservation and the community. These members, like Margaret, have led by example and are an inspiration to others within the Society and their respective communities.

Please consider sending in a nomination for one of these awards. Read the criteria carefully and tell us, in approx 350 words, how you think this person, project or campaign meets the criteria and why you think recognition is deserved. The nomination can come from a non-member but the subject must be a Wildlife Queensland member or activity.

Please email completed nomination forms to wpsq@wildlife.org.au before 31 July.
