The Indianapolis Prize is an initiative undertaken by the Indianapolis Zoological Society, Inc. to share the importance of animal conservation by recognizing individual conservationists who are saving animal species from extinction.

What initially began as a simple quest, a mission driven idea 12 years ago, the Prize is now internationally renowned and recognized as the world’s largest award for animal conservation. With your support we are enabled to continue the important work that can reverse the path to extinction for thousands of species in the next decade.

The generosity of our partners, sponsors and the Indianapolis community is the driving force behind the success of this award. With your sponsorship we strive to offer a unique opportunity to focus the public’s attention on the conservation of animals and their natural environments. By sponsoring the Indianapolis Prize you and your organization are supporting the global cause, and mission of the Indianapolis Zoological Society, Inc., to advance animal conservation.

If you are interested in learning more about how you can help support the Indianapolis Prize, please call 317-630-2711 or contact us.
