2017 WWF Conservation Awards
If you’re an inventor, an innovator, or a creator, enter the Conservation Innovation Awards (CIA) for the chance to win a $25k grant.
The CIA awards celebrate Kiwi innovators whose bright ideas look set to make a real difference in protecting our precious ecosystems and native species. Find out more about the Conservation Innovation Awards
Last year’s winners were a water testing device, a drone tracking system and an app that maps kauri dieback.
“The Award has opened doors, broken down some barriers and opened minds to what is achievable.”
Philip Solaris, 2016 winner with ‘DroneCounts’
WWF works with the support of The Tindall Foundation, Department of Conservation, Callaghan Innovation, Predator Free 2050 and New Zealand’s Biological Heritage National Science Challenge.
