MIRI: United States non-profit organisation Seacology has selected SAVE Rivers chairman Peter Kallang as the winner of its annual US$10,000 prize.

The prize is awarded to an islander for exceptional achievement in preserving the environment and culture of his or her home country.

Peter is the first Sarawakian and second Malaysian to win the prize.

In 2004, Sabahan Adrian Lasimbang, who is today a senator, was the Malaysian to win the prize.

The prize is underwritten by Seacology president Ken Murdock in honour of his mother Lalovi Fish Murdock.
