This is a story started way back on September 26th, 2018.
And we’ve kept it secret over a year as we worked with associates and volunteers to put everything together to get to this point.
Today it is official. Our founder, Martin Tyner, is one of 31 nominees in the running for the 2020 Indianapolis Prize.
“The Indianapolis Prize recognizes and rewards conservationists who have achieved major victories in advancing the sustainability of an animal species or group of species. Winners receive an unrestricted $250,000 award. Remaining Finalists each receive $10,000.”
We are incredibly excited about Martin’s nomination and thrilled to see his work acknowledged among the ranks of 30 other amazing conservationists!
The Indianapolis Prize is the world’s leading award for animal conservation and its nominees hail from countries around the globe.
We hope you will join us in congratulating Martin and all of the 31 nominees as well as thanking the Indianapolis Prize officials for supporting the work they do. The Indianapolis Prize social sites will be sharing more information about each nominee in the coming months.
