Nominations Open for 2019 National Geographic Buffett Awards for Leadership in Conservation!

Deadline: 30 November 2018

The National Geographic Society (NGS) is currently seeking nominations for its 2019 Buffett Award for Leadership in Africa and Latin America.

The annual National Geographic Society/Buffett Awards for Leadership in Conservation were established by the Society and The Howard G. Buffett Foundation to recognize and celebrate unsung heroes working in the field.

Award recipients are chosen from nominations submitted to National Geographic Society through a rigorous peer-review process.

Award Information

The awardees chosen each year are honored at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., and receive a one-time award of $25,000 to support their ongoing work.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Nominee must be citizen from the country where he/she develops the conservation work
  • Nominee must be an accomplished individual that has created positive change in his/her community through conservation

  • Preference will be given to nominees with species-focused conservation efforts
  • Individuals nominating themselves will not be considered
