The Guide to Animal Conservation Giving

The team behind the Indianapolis Prize, the world’s leading award for animal conservation, has unveiled a unique guide to help preserve wild things and wild places worldwide. Champions for Our Planet: The Indianapolis Prize Guide to Animal Conservation Giving spotlights organizations supporting the conservation heroes of the Indianapolis Prize and serves as an expert roadmap for giving purposeful gifts that foster and sustain endangered species and ecosystems. The organizations represented in the guide include some of the most respected names in animal conservation, including Polar Bears International, Wildlife Conservation Society, International Crane Foundation, American Friends of Durrell and many more.
