The Frankfurt Conservation Award
The Bruno H. Schubert-Preis
The Bruno H. Schubert Prize is awarded by the Frankfurt-based Bruno H. Schubert Foundation to individuals for their exceptional commitment to preserving the biological diversity of our planet. The non-profit foundation has been honoring scientific achievements and the practical implementation of research results in the field of nature conservation and environmental protection since 1983. Among the award winners are big names such as Jacques-Yves Cousteau (1983), Prof. Edward O. Wilson (1996) or Prof. Klaus Töpfer (2002).
The total amount of prize money is currently 70,000 euros. The foundation's board of directors determines the distribution of the prize money among the three prize categories. The prize money is determined from the income of the foundation's assets.
