During this first week of December, WFN is teaming up with the Big Give Christmas Challenge to raise £100,000. We will channel this funding to grassroots conservationists who need our support now more than ever. Every penny you donate via this link will be DOUBLED.

Our 2020 Whitley Award winners are working alongside communities to conserve our natural world at a critical moment.

On Wednesday 2 December at 7pm (GMT) they join us virtually from South Africa, Indonesia, Nigeria, Kenya, Bhutan and Brazil.

We invite you to dress up, raise a glass and come together across continents, so we can applaud their extraordinary achievements in what has been an unprecedented year.

Have you seen our winners’ stories? Follow WFN on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to find fact files about Gabriela, Jeanne, Yoki, Rachel, Ali, Phuntsho and Patrícia.

We are grateful for the support of our Whitley Awards Partner, Earlymarket LLP.Whitley Awards Partner Earlymarket
