The MIDORI Prize for Biodiversity
The MIDORI Prize for Biodiversity honors remarkable contributions to conservation and the sustainable use of biodiversity globally, regionally, and locally. It was established in 2010 and organized by the AEON Environmental Foundation along with the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity/UNEP.
