The additional Special Youth category honours youngsters that have taken action against poaching.
Founders Dr Larry Hansen, and Miss Xiaoyang Yu, with sponsors Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, in collaboration with the South African Department of Environmental Affairs and the Game Rangers Association of Africa, will present the Rhino Conservation Awards in 2016. His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco serves as the Patron of the awards.

An executive committee will review all nominations and draw up a short-list. A panel of adjudicators will then identify the winners and runners up in each category.
