Applications are open for the Whitley Awards 2023. The Whitley Awards fund grassroots conservation leaders in the Global South and put an international spotlight on winners’ work.
Winning a Whitley Award is not just about receiving financial support. Whitley Fund for Nature (WFN) also accelerates the careers of conservationists by welcoming them to the world stage. Increased visibility builds local pride for, and participation in, projects on-the-ground. It helps winners inspire more philanthropic support from new sources, and connect with other conservationists to share successes, failures and resources. In turn, with greater credibility, conservationists are in a better position to influence environmental policy on a regional, national and international scale.
Whitley Award winners are celebrated through a global PR campaign, tailor-made films narrated by Trustee, Sir David Attenborough, and endorsement from high profile supporters such as Ambassadors, Tom Heap and Kate Humble.
Applications for the 2023 Whitley Awards will close at midnight GMT on October 31, 2022. This Ceremony will take place in Spring 2023.
