Wings worldquest recognizes and supports
extraordinary women
in science and exploration.

Through the Fellows and Flag Carrier programs, WINGS creates community and showcases the groundbreaking work of women scientists and explorers, whose discoveries advance scientific inquiry, stimulate conservation, and lead to better understanding of our world.

WINGS’ outreach programs provide a platform for women scientists and explorers to share their work and inspire the next generation of intrepid explorers and global problem-solvers. To date, WINGS has honored over 79 extraordinary explorers through its Women of Discovery Awards and Fellows Program and provided nearly $600,000 in research and field support, monies that in many cases have proven critical to continued study.
