About Us

The Whitley Fund for Nature is a fundraising and grant-giving nature conservation charity offering recognition, training and grants to support the work of proven grassroots conservation leaders in developing countries.

OBJECTIVES

  • Find, recognise and fund proven grassroots conservation leaders in resource-poor, biodiversity-rich countries.
  • Champion and repeat fund the most effective winners.
  • Support the replication and growth of effective conservation solutions.
  • Raise awareness of the work of winners and spread the message that we can all make a difference to the conservation of wildlife and wild places.

Our winners are local environmental heroes who lead projects with passion, harnessing the best available science on which to act. Through them we support work rooted in community involvement that is pragmatic and creates lasting impact.
