Thirty years ago Rolex created the biennial Awards for Enterprise to honour 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 winning schemes 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. Packed with photographs and accessible texts by a top team of international journalists, this book commemorates the unique and life-enhancing projects of the most recent award-winners.
