Whitley Fund for Nature
Deputy Director
London W11
The Whitley Fund for Nature (WFN) is a charity offering funding, training and recognition to support the work of proven grassroots conservation leaders working in biodiversity-rich, resource-poor countries. At WFN I lead on delivery of the annual Whitley Awards Ceremony and oversee the charity’s operations and Awards programmes. The Awards Ceremony celebrates successful local conservationists who are making a difference to endangered species and local communities on the ground. As well as funding, the Award puts a PR spotlight on conservation heroes and champions their success. An important (and very enjoyable) part of my role is to keep the charity in close contact with its winners, who form an international network numbering over 170 alumni in 70 countries.
