Esmond Bradley Martin Royal Geographical Society Prize and Esmond Bradley Martin endowment for Pachyderm


In the wake of an endowment by the late Esmond Bradley Martin, the Royal Geographical Society is delighted to announce that nominations are invited for the inaugural Esmond Bradley Martin Royal Geographical Society Prize. One or two annual prizes will be awarded to recognise outstanding achievement by individuals (not organizations) in the pursuit and/or application of geographical research across the breadth of the discipline, with a particular emphasis on wildlife conservation and environmental research studies. A lecture on Monday 3 April 2023 will honour Esmond’s achievements and launch the prize. For more information about the Prize, how to make a nomination, and the lecture, please visit or email

The endowment from Esmond Bradley Martin to the Royal Geographical Society also includes ongoing support for the publication of Pachyderm.
