        Current Status

        As of 2011, no new Colibri as we give a major rethink to the whole award. However, we encourage all winners and supporters to continue the good work and to be supportive of one another!

        Reasons for holding off on the award this year
        There is no financial backing for the award.
        There has been no official recognition of the award for a few years.
        The award has not generated significant synergy and collaboration among winners
        It's time to take a break.

        Background

        As part of the global celebration of World Environment Day (June 5), Planeta.com presents the annual Colibri Ecotourism Award (2001-2010) to a leading catalyst working toward ecotourism and responsible travel in Mexico!

        Recent News (May 2013)

        In May Colibri Ecotourism Award winner Marlene Ehrenberg presented her water-savings in hotels presentation at UABJO in Oaxaca de Juárez.

        (October 2012)

        In October Colibri Ecotourism Award winner Pedro Martinez participated in the Eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in Hyderabad, India. The event focused on the conservation of the diversity of life on earth. Pedro's work previously was highlighted in the Indigenous Tourism and Biodiversity Website Award.
