Partners For Planet match funding success! Together, we’ve reached our target…

We’re pleased to share that we have reached our target of raising £160,000 for locally-led wildlife conservation to mark WFN's 30th Anniversary

We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped us to reach our target by donating to our Partners For Planet match fund.

We were thrilled when WFN Ambassador Lord Robin Russell, The Britta and Jeremy Lloyd Charitable Trust and The Sarah and Patrick Wills Foundation generously agreed to match every penny donated in honour of our 30th Anniversary, up to £80,000 – enabling us to collectively raise £160,000 in support of locally-led solutions to global biodiversity and climate crises – and thanks to your generosity, we’ve reached that goal!

“We need the work of Whitley Award winners to succeed and to help them to whatever extent possible.” WFN Ambassador, Sir David Attenborough

What’s more, we are now just £15,000 away from meeting this year’s fundraising target of £2.3 million by the end of June! Please get in touch if you’d like to help us close the gap.

As we look ahead to the next 30 years, we know that it is only together that we can tackle the challenges that our planet faces.

Thank you for being our #PartnersForPlanet.
