Morigenos president receives a prestigious international award

We are proud to announce that Tilen Genov, the founder and president of Morigenos, recently received a prestigious international award for his efforts in dolphin conservation in Slovenia. The award, known as the Alfred Toepfer Natural Heritage Scholarship, is awarded by EUROPARC Federation (International Federation of Protected Areas in Europe) and the Alfred Toepfer Foundation. Out of 43 candidates, the award was given to three young European conservationists, based on their existing achievements and proposed future work in the field of nature conservation. Apart from Tilen, the award was received by two young scientists from Belgium and Hungary. The scholarship enables the winners to undertake study visits to protected areas and conservation organizations in other European countries, in order to translate the gained knowledge into conservation practice within their respective countries. The award ceremony was held last Thursday, 25th October 2012, at the EUROPARC 2012 conference in Belgium. The event also marked the 20th anniversary of the European network of protected areas, called Natura 2000.

Morigenos team is very proud of Tilen and congratulates him for this achievement.
