A campaigner who was jailed during his battle to save the rainforest in Gabon has received a top international award. Marc Ona Essangui was honoured for his fight to stop what he describes as a destructive mining project in the Ivindo National Park. He is one of seven people from six continental regions to be awarded an equal share of the $900,000 (600,000) 2009 Goldman Environmental Prize.
