World Environment Day Awards

89.7 PBA FM’s radio series Park Friends was a finalist in the Media Category of the World Environment Day Awards 2012. Presented in Melbourne on Friday evening 12 June, the main award went to ABC TV’s Foreign Correspondent (seven person team) program on Sumatran Tigers. However, as a finalist (with a one-person team), it was great to have Park Friends, an entry from the Community Radio sector, recognised in the company of strong entries from ABC TV and SBS TV.

Sincere thanks to all who contributed to this project, especially all of the many interviewees, and the many people from the Friends of Black Hill and Morialta (and President John Fleming) who unstintingly gave freely and generously of their time and expertise. PBA FM is also very cognisant of the assistance of the Adelaide Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board and Volunteer Coordinator Liz Millington, without whose support, this project would not have been possible. Thanks too to the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources staff who assisted with the official launch of this project at the Morialta Resource Centre.
