Partnership Funding is a one-off grant type endowed by Fondation Segré and managed by WFN, which recognises and provides further funding to support the work of four of WFN’s most successful previous Whitley Award and Continuation Funding winners. Over three years, grant funding totalling €1,500,000 will deliver urgent conservation activities to conserve snow leopards in India, penguins in Argentina, freshwater dolphins in Colombia and large carnivores in Turkey.
This programme offers grants of €337,500 per project over three years (€112,500 per year per project) to outstanding, Whitley award winning conservation leaders and reflects the quality, scale, urgency and financial need of their work. This support provides much needed funding to projects that are having a real and measurable impact on endangered wildlife and local communities.
The four projects are:
- Charudutt Mishra – From grassroots to global: Realising a conservation vision for snow leopards across their range
- Pablo Borboroglu – Fostering global penguin conservation
- Fernando Trujillo – Strengthening Local and Regional Conservation Initiatives for the Protection of Rivers & Dolphins in South America
- Çağan Şekercioğlu – Landscape Conservation of Large Carnivores, Turkey
