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.
During the first week of December, WFN is teaming up with the Big Give Christmas Challenge to raise £100,000.
A new way you can support our Whitley Award winners, just in time for Christmas.
We go live on YouTube on Wednesday 2 December at 7pm (GMT). Watch the trailer, narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
With Sir David Attenborough and HRH The Princess Royal we celebrate the 2020 Whitley Award winners. WFN’s first ever virtual event, hosted by Tom Heap and Kate Humble.
The conservation hero behind the mask: Mexico’s Bat Man, Rodrigo Medellín, joined us for Takeover Tuesday in October.

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.

WFN is one of the most cost effective and direct impact charities working to protect the environment.

This is what the Whitley Awards are all about – recognising effective grassroots leaders and helping them expand their work.
