2023 Whitley Awards Ceremony

Date: 26th April 2023
Time: 7:00 pm

On Wednesday 26 April, we will announce and celebrate the winners of the 2023 Whitley Awards at a ceremony in London, hosted by WFN Ambassadors Tom Heap and Kate Humble and attended by the charity’s Patron, HRH The Princess Royal.

Our flagship prizes, Whitley Awards are given to inspiring conservationists leading local projects to benefit wildlife, landscapes and people, following a global search and assessment by an expert Judging Panel.

This year, we are also celebrating Whitley Fund for Nature’s 30th Anniversary. This is a chance for us to reflect on the successes that we have collectively achieved through 30 years of partnerships with our global network of winners, and with all of our donors and supporters. 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.
