WHAT IS
The Indianapolis Prize?
THE WORLD'S LEADING ANIMAL CONSERVATION AWARD

It all began as a question: What can we do that will really make a difference in saving the lives of endangered and threatened animals all over the world? That question led to the concept of the Indianapolis Prize, an initiative that would approach the issue of animal conservation in a whole new way by combining significant financial support with programs that build emotional and intellectual support. The Indianapolis Prize awards $250,000 to one of the most successful animal conservationist in the world, while five Finalists each receive $10,000.
