After a grueling selection process, winners from all walks of life are selected as the recipients of one of six prestigious titles: The Lifetime Service Award, The Wildlife Service Award, The Green Teacher Award, The Young Naturalist Award, The Wind Under the Wings Award and the Special Tiger 00Award. Each category, like the nominees, is unique in its own way.
