Environmental Prize awarded for protection of lakes and wetlands

The international Yves Rocher Trophée de Femmes was awarded to Marion Hammerl, President of the Global Nature Fund for her contribution to the Living Lakes network honouring her outstanding honorary commitment for the protection of lakes and water o­n a global basis and through concrete local projects.
The network Living Lakes, which was founded by the Global Nature Fund ten years ago, provides environmental organisations a platform to exchange experiences, set up joint projects and provide mutual assistance.
This September, the network members will meet at the 12th international Living Lakes Conference at Lake Trasimeno in Italy to discuss the cultural values of lakes and how these can contribute to protect lakes. Simultaneously, Living Lakes will celebrate its 10th anniversary.
