Papoose Conservation Wildlife Foundation Invites Applications for Youth, Applied Conservation Grants

The Papoose Conservation Wildlife Foundation in Del Mar, California, is unique in that it focuses on both wildlife science and children’s experiences in nature and seeks to merge these two missions to see children become the scientists of tomorrow working to preserve wildlife diversity.

To advance this mission, the foundation is inviting applications for its Children in Nature and Applied Conservation grants programs. Through the program, grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded in two separate categories:

Children in Nature — Programs aimed at providing opportunities for children to explore nature or expand children’s appreciation of nature. Programs may include classroom learning but the majority of the program must take place in a natural environment. Preference is given to projects connecting children to lesser-recognized species or habitats.

Applied Conservation — Projects focused on the conservation of free-ranging wildlife or plant species in their natural habitat. Work may include the protection of species and/or habitats. Preference is given to projects focused on lesser-recognized species.

To be eligible, applicants must be affiliated with a U.S.-based nonprofit organization.

See the Papoose Conservation Wildlife Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: October 1, 2019
