The founder of POPOF, John Kahekwa, is an expert on gorilla conservation and winner of the 2012 Marjan-Marsh Award for an outstanding conservationist working in a region of armed conflict, the 2013 Whitley Award and the 2016 Prince William Lifetime Award for conservation in Africa, and was finalist in the Protect and Restore Nature category of the inaugural Earthshot Prize in 2021.
