Gecko's Annual Environmental Awards Night

Each year, Gecko acknowledges individuals, groups and businesses within the South East Queensland community who have made a significant contribution to the preservation of, or improvement to, our local natural environment. In recognition of this, Gecko hosts the annual environmental awards ceremony to celebrate the outstanding achievements of these people through the presentation of a Gecko Award to each recipient.

In 2019, for the 23rd time, Gecko will be acknowledging and celebrating community based environmental work on the Gold Coast.

“These awards are all about the community and the wonderful, tireless work they do to preserve and better our natural environment” Gecko Secretary and a previous award recipient Rose Adams said.

“Think of anyone and everyone who do something magnificent for our environment and nominate them for this year’s awards. This is a way to thank and celebrate invaluable work that can very easily and too often go unnoticed.”

Everyone is encouraged to nominate someone.   It is easy, just complete the form on so they know their efforts are recognised.
