A Pinner boy has been recognised nationally at the Animal Action Awards for his conservation work and dedication to protecting London’s wildlife and green spaces.

Kabir Kaul, 16, who lives in Eastcote, received the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) Animal Action Youth Conservation Award at the House of Lords on Tuesday, October 12. He was presented with the national award by Baroness Gale and received a tour of Parliament by Lord Stansgate.

Kabir said: “I feel very humbled and honoured to receive the IFAW award and with this, I hope to continue to advocate for wildlife and green spaces. London is a big urban city but also a very green city, one of the greenest in the world. 47 per cent of London is green, and it’s vital that we protect it.”

James Sawyer, UK Director of IFAW, said: “Kabir’s dedication to promoting conservation and wildlife protection in our urban areas, at such a young age, is very impressive. We hope his efforts will also inspire other young people to protect their local environment and the animals that call it home. He is a very deserving winner of IFAW’s Youth Conservation Award.”

After completing his A-Levels, Kabir hopes to study a wildlife conservation or ecology-themed degree and become a broadcaster informing people of wildlife and biodiversity in different environments.
