Yesterday, Thursday, “Sex and the City” actress Kristin Davis (58) was awarded the “Perfect World Foundation Award” environmental prize in Gothenburg for her long-standing commitment to the fight to protect endangered animal species. The bearer of the trophy was Sarah Ferguson (63), Duchess of York and ex-wife of the British Prince Andrew (63).
The award from the Swedish environmental organization “The Perfect World Foundation” annually honors prominent “Conservationist of the Year” who have actively supported wildlife. Sarah Ferguson has been the bearer of the trophy, a crystal rhino, for several years now.
Davis received the award, among other things, for her commitment to the "David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust", an NGO based in Kenya's capital Nairobi that is particularly committed to rescuing orphaned elephants. The actress has also been supporting charitable organizations such as “Oxfam” for years.
The Duchess of York commented on the event on her Facebook channel with the following words: "As a long-time ambassador for the 'Perfect World Foundation', I would like to extend my sincerest congratulations to philanthropist, actress and producer Kristin Davis. It is an honor to offer you the ' The Perfect World Foundation Award 2023.
