Awarded by the Standing Committee of the Ramsar Convention, the prize has a monetary value of US$10,000.
This award, according to Angop, is intended to give recognition to the Angolan woman's work in favor of the preservation of mangroves, which allow the protection of various marine species.
Dedicated to the protection, preservation and recovery of wetlands – with a focus on mangroves –, the environmentalist is seen as an inspiration for many, having captured the attention not only of several volunteers but also of government officials and institutions to join her cause. .
It should be noted that Fernanda Renée – who started her environmental journey with an action to save the habitat of the flamingos of Lobito – also sounded the alarms of the President, João Lourenço, who invited her to join the Council of the Republic, writes Angop.
The Angolan is the founder of the NGO Otchiva, dedicated to the preservation of mangroves, as well as the co-founder of AmbiReciclo, a company that promotes the green economy.
