A sea slug called Mandelia Micocornata named after Mandela by the marine biologists, Angel Vlades and Terry Gosliner who discovered it, as an honour to him. It is regarded as something of an honour to have a species of organism named after you. To have a genus named after you is even more of an honour because new genera are less often named than new species. However, an even greater honour is to have a family named after you because new families are rarely created. Valdés & Gosliner (1999) honoured Nelson Mandela by naming a genus and family of seaslug (Mollusca: Nudibranchia) after him. Mandelia mirocornata has only been recorded along the coast line of the Cape Peninsula

Mandela was Patron-in-chief of the Presidents' Award for Youth Empowerment from 1992 to 2010. The President's Award for Youth Empowerment has strong international links through its affiliation with the Duke of Edinburgh's Award which was started in 1956 by HRH, The Prince Philip. The Award Programme was first introduced in the United Kingdom in 1956 as The Duke of Edinburgh's Award. The aim was to motivate young people to become involved in a balanced programme of voluntary self-development activities to take them through the potentially difficult period between adolescence and adulthood. The Award Programme, through the network of The International Award Association, is operating in more than 120 countries of which 21 in Africa. In South Africa, the Award Programme started out as the Gold Shield Award in 1983 and 11 years later, in 1994, with the dawn of the new democratic South Africa, was relaunched as The President's Award for Youth Empowerment, with then South African President, Nelson Mandela as the Founding Patron-in-Chief. In Grahamstown, Nelson Mandela and Britain’s Prince Edward recognised 200 young South Africans for their help in poor communities.
