funding, profile & training for conservation leaders
The Whitley Fund for Nature has given £18 million to support the work of more than 200 grassroots conservationists benefiting wildlife and communities in 80 countries across the Global South.
See speeches by WFN’s Founder and Director at the 2021 Whitley Awards.
We asked winners around the world to share their answer to the question “how has winning a Whitley Award helped you?”
Meet this year’s recipients of world-leading prizes for grassroots wildlife conservation.

The Whitley Fund for Nature is unique. It doesn’t put its own people on the ground but seeks out local leaders who are already succeeding. It puts its money where it really counts, where every penny counts.
