The Whitley Fund for Nature

The Whitley Fund for Nature (WFN) is a fundraising and grant-giving wildlife conservation charity offering recognition, training and grants to support the work of proven grassroots conservation leaders working across the Global South. Our winners are local environmental champions who lead projects with passion, harnessing the best available science on which to act. Through them we support work rooted in community involvement that is pragmatic and creates lasting impact for people and wildlife. Through our laddered funding model we incubate conservation talent, accelerate the career paths of grant recipients, facilitate development of collaborative partnerships and provide sustained support to enable scale-up of effective conservation solutions.
