Good day Funds Fans!  More good funding news on the environmental front today 🙂  The Whitley Awards are for wildlife and nature conservation focused projects.  Whitley Awards recognise the leadership qualities of individuals working with effective teams with strong nature conservation experience. We look for people who are excellent ambassadors for the work that they do.  It is not a requirement of the team leader to hold professional scientific qualifications. However, projects that aim to address issues on a biological level will need to demonstrate that activities will be informed based on scientific data. The inclusion of appropriate scientists or expertise on the team will also be expected if this is relevant to the project.

Application to the Whitley Awards is open and applicants do not need to be nominated.  Whitley Awards are worth £35,000 GBP in conservation funding to be spent on projects over a period of one year.  Up to seven Whitley Awards will be available in 2014.  The deadline for applications is Thursday October 31st 2013.
