The Twelfth Annual Rolex Awards for Enterprise
Thirty years ago Rolex created the biennial Awards for Enterprise to honor outstanding individual achievements in the realms of science and nature, invention and discovery, culture and heritage. Out of thousands of contenders, ten people are singled out for their dedicated and passionate contributions around the world. Past projects have included a system to prevent collisions between whales and ships, a plan to protect the Amazonian rainforest, and the reintroduction of rare wild horses into Mongolia.
Filled with photographs and accessible texts by an international team of journalists, this book commemorates the unique and life-enhancing projects of the most recent award winners.
