Yesterday at WILD9, we honored two great conservationists: Ernesto Enkerlin and Kenton Miller, with the awarding of the Kenton Miller Award for for Innovation In Protected Area Sustainability. It was a huge honor to see these two remarkable leaders on stage.
Enkerlin is President of Mexico’s Natural Areas Management Commission, and has created a new and accessible vision, a lot of energy and a willingness to try! Ernesto played a leading role in the establishment of the El Carmen wilderness area. He received the prestigious Kenton R. Miller Award in recognition of his innovation of a new mechanism, policy, tool or field practice to promote the wilderness.
The award honors WILD’s longtime friend and colleague Dr. Kenton Miller, a world recognized leader in park and protected areas management.
