Love of the Wild awarded by the Finnish Hunters’ Association
Love of the Wild has been awarded by The Finnish Hunters’ Association for promoting a positive and responsible image of hunting. This was the first time the award, named after Daniel Wadén, a Finnish hunting and gamekeeping advocate, was granted.
– Love of the Wild brings the tradition of responsible hunting into today’s world in a positive way, as well as bringing hunting closer to Finns, said Chairman of the Board Tuomas Hallenberg.
It was decided by the production team that the monetary award of 1000 euros will be donated to a nature-related charity cause, to be revealed in February.
