Our featured charity: Campaign for National Parks announce the winners!

Park Protector Awards 2021 - winners revealed! - Campaign for National Parks

This year’s awards attracted nominations from 12 out of 13 National Parks in England and Wales with a range of work represented – from ensuring local people had access to food and medicine, to health and wellbeing initiatives, nature conservation and visitor engagement, much of which moved online.

National Parks in England and Wales saw huge increases in visitors in between lockdowns last year (2020) which brought many challenges but also opportunities – which Lake District National Park Authority, volunteer teams such as Rod’s and many others seized to not only care for the parks, but transform their approach to caring for the landscape and engaging with residents and visitors.

Anita Konradta, Campaign for National Parks Chief Executive, said: “We were absolutely blown away by the quality of nominations this year. We knew when we launched the awards last month (Feb 2021) that staff and volunteers in our National Parks had gone above and beyond this past year not only to protect, but to share our National Parks with everyone at their time of need. Reading through the applications, it really hit home just how amazing – and successful – these efforts have been, and in many cases continue to be.”

Congratulations to all the winners - and watch out for some more about this in a forthcoming piece from CNP, our featured charity this year.
