Species Conservation Fund – Oct 31

Posted by Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund on September 28, 2021

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund Accepting Applications From Conservation Organizations

The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund was established to provide targeted grants to individual species conservation initiatives, recognize leaders in the field and elevate the importance of species in the broader conservation debate. The program’s focus is global, and eligibility will extend to all plant, animal, and fungi species conservation efforts, without discrimination based on region or selected species.

Grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded. In general, the fund prioritizes those species facing a high threat of extinction (with an emphasis on endangered and critically endangered species), and those listed as data deficient or unlisted but are suspected as highly threatened. In addition, the fund is primarily interested in providing support to in situ conservation work in the field (such as survey work and data gathering, direct action, recovery management, training, and the like) that focuses on the species in its natural habitat. However, the importance of ex-situ work (genetic analysis, workshops, ex situ populations, etc.) is also recognized; therefore, a few grants may be given to projects that focus on ex situ conservation work in certain circumstances.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund.

Deadline: October 31, 2021
