Our 2019 Whitley Awards Ceremony will be held at the Royal Geographical Society on Wednesday 1 May. This annual ceremony, hosted by BBC television presenter and WFN ambassador Kate Humble, will announce and celebrate this year’s round of Whitley Award winners – grassroots conservation leaders from across the Global South – as well as our Gold Award winner. This year’s Ceremony will be attended by our Patron, HRH The Princess Royal, and Trustee, Sir David Attenborough.
Our flagship conservation prizes are won competitively following assessment by an expert academic panel and are worth £40,000 in project funding over one year. Also known as the ‘Green Oscars’, they bring profile and recognition to mid-career conservationists from biodiversity-rich, resource-poor countries.
This event is invite-only, though the full ceremony will be live streamed on our YouTube Channel.
