Congratulations Dan and Will !!
Daniel and William attended the Queensland Australian of the Year Awards 2021 at the Brisbane Convention Centre where they were among four finalists in the QLD Young Australian of the Year category.
After the announcement of the four finalists, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, announced Daniel and William Clarke as the 2021 QLD Young Australian of the Year.
Daniel almost jumped out of his wheelchair.

Daniel and William feel incredibly honoured to have this recognition for their efforts over the past 12 years and are so excited for what this award will bring for their quest to create greater awareness for the orangutans. The boys hope to inspire students across Australia to become passionate for the environment and take action, as Sir David Attenborough says, “…to re-wild the planet”.
