The Indianapolis Prize

Image of Connect July 2017 Cover with African ElephantIndianapolis is a sports town known for fast cars, its deeply-rooted love of basketball and its designation as the amateur sports capital of the world. With so much attention lavished on sports heroes, could it actually be possible to raise an animal conservationist to the level of a national hero?

The Indianapolis Zoo wanted to show that the stories of successful wildlife conservation are accessible, and it needed to innovate in a way that would inspire future generations. The program also had to employ the key elements at the heart of the Indianapolis Zoo’s mission: the engagement, enlightenment and empowerment of communities in the advancement of conservation action worldwide. With that as its foundation, the Indianapolis Prize began.
