Inaugural Critic and Conscience Award made to 'environmental crusader'
Mike received the inaugural Critic and Conscience of Society Award for his work in drawing attention to the issue of water quality, and was interviewed by Wallace Chapman on Sunday Morning here.
“Mike’s work has successfully placed a complex and difficult environmental issue on the public agenda. He’s single-handedly raised awareness of an issue that’s at the heart of our country’s primary economy and environment. While some of his messages are unpalatable to some, Mike has been a fearless crusader to ensure this issue remains a top of the agenda for central and local government, as well as for the agricultural industry,” member of the judging panel Steve Weaver said.
