CRP’s Founder Valerie A. Taylor received the ‘Nature Conservation Award 2019’ from the Prokriti o Jibon Foundation (Nature and Life Foundation) of Channel I.

Honourable Minister of Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Md. Shahab Uddin, attended the event as the Chief Guest. Other officials from the ministry and high officials of Channel I and Nature and Life Foundation were also present in the event.
Valerie, who was brought up in the village of the UK, was always moved by the beauty of nature. She settled in Bangladesh for she fell in love with the beauty of this country on her first visit. Anyone who visited CRP’s Headquarters at Savar can easily realize how affectionate she is towards nature. Realizing this, on the occasion of their 10th anniversary the Nature and Life Foundation honoured Valerie’s contribution towards Bangladesh and the nature with this award.
