Each year a previous Whitley Award winner is selected to receive the Whitley Gold Award in recognition of their outstanding contribution to conservation. Our Gold Award winners are international advocates for biodiversity with the passion and ambition to effect large-scale change. The Award is worth up to £60,000 in project funding. Gold winners also join the Whitley Awards Judging Panel and act as a mentor to new winners during the Awards week. Whitley Award winners wishing to be considered for nomination should contact the WFN office for more information.
