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.
You are invited: join Sir David Attenborough and HRH The Princess Royal for the 2021 Whitley Awards Ceremony.
Happy New Year! As we begin January and another lockdown, our winners’ achievements make for an inspiring reflection on what went right last year.
Whitley Award alumni receive one million pounds of Continuation Funding.
In December we premiered seven short films about the 2020 Whitley Award winners. Watch them on demand.
We are thrilled to announce that, thanks to you, we have exceeded our target to raise £100,000 through the Big Give Christmas Challenge.

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.
