Posted by Jamal Fida Tuesday, September 3, 2013 0 comments
Closing Date: October 31,2013.

Whitley Fund for Nature (WFN) is pleased to offer “Whitley Awards” to outstanding biodiversity conservation leaders around the world. Whitley Awards are both an international profile prize and a form of project funding (currently £35,000 over one year).

The Whitley Awards are for wildlife and nature conservation focused projects. Application to the Whitley Awards is open and applicants do not need to be nominated.

·      Whitley Awards winners are nationals of the countries where their conservation activities are focused (i.e. they were born there or have lived there a long time and have achieved national status) or are local to the region in which they work. This is because we have found these people often have the understanding necessary to bring about long term change and build capacity locally.  Recent expatriates from developed, high-income economy countries are not eligible for Whitley Awards.
·  Whitley Awards focus on individuals working in locations where international funds are hardest to raise, most needed, and will make the largest conservation impact. The strategic focus of the Whitley Awards is national conservation leadership in countries that are not defined as a High Income Economy by the World Bank 

·  Applicants must be able to communicate in English, and be capable of compiling a written report to describe and quantify the success of their work with appropriate academic references. 

Focus Area:
·      Nature conservation
·      Ecosystem approach
·      Engage the local community and build capacity
·      Education
