Whitley Fund for Nature

The Whitley Fund for Nature (WFN) is a UK registered charity offering "Whitley Awards" to outstanding nature conservation leaders around the world. Whitley Awards are both an international profile prize and a form of project grant (currently £30,000 over one year, with a top prize of £60,000 over two years). Whitley Awards were developed to recognize effective leaders and communicators from around the world who are applying sustained, effective efforts to conserve the natural
environment. Conservation needs success stories and champions, and the Whitley Award winner network is a celebration of success taking place all over the world. WFN supports conservationists who already have proven results behind them and are ready to scale up their success and activities.

Whitley Awards are open to conservation leaders working in countries or regions of which they are nationals and that are not defined as a HIGH-INCOME ECONOMY by the World Bank (exceptions to this criterion include island nations in the Pacific and Caribbean and some countries in the Middle East).

The deadline for applications: Sunday October 31st 2010.

The Awards will be presented by WFN Patron, HRH The Princess Royal, at the annual Whitley Awards Ceremony in May 2011 and successful applicants will receive funding in June 2011.
