The Pax Natura Award is a prestigious recognition of an individual whose work exemplifies the pinnacle value of The Pax Nature Foundation:

“To create peace with nature on all levels for the preservation of life on this beautiful Planet Earth.”

Each year, an award recipient receives $10,000 dollars and the Pax Natura “Golden Toad” award plate, custom designed and numbered by Arizona glass artist Cheryl Merz. Through this  acknowledgement, Pax Natura Foundation hopes to focus local and international attention on those individuals whose vision and efforts have resulted in healing the division between the human community and the natural world. 

The Pax Natura Foundation welcomes suggestions for eligible candidates from the local and international communities to be considered for the award.
