About this Event

You are invited to join our Patron, HRH The Princess Royal and Trustee, Sir David Attenborough on Wednesday 12 May at 7pm BST to meet the new Whitley Award winners and Gold Award recipient, at an online ceremony hosted live by charity Ambassadors Tom Heap and Kate Humble.

Whitley Award winners are courageous changemakers, working with communities to conserve wildlife and habitats across the global south.

For many of us, COVID-19 – a zoonotic disease spread to humans from exploited wild animals – has been our first direct experience of the climate and biodiversity crises. This year offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for change.

Global leaders will reform environmental policies at the biodiversity COP15 and climate COP26 conventions. On-the-ground, Whitley Awards winners are grassroots leaders turning political ambitions into a green reality as the world works towards recovery. Now we need you to come together across continents and support them.

Will you join our #RootToRecovery?

Whitley Awards are prestigious prizes providing funding, training and profile. After a global search, there are now just 15 candidates left in the running; meet our shortlist here.

We will also reveal the winner of the 2021 Gold Award – our top prize for Whitley Award alumni who have gone on to make an outstanding contribution to conservation.

Watch last year's ceremony here, see a collection of short films about the 2020 winners here, and read a roundup of the press coverage here.
