The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund is established to:
- Provide targeted grants to individual species conservation initiatives
- Recognize leaders in the field of species conservation; and
- Elevate the importance of species in the broader conservation debate
The Fund is open to applications for funding support from conservationists based in all parts of the world, and will potentially support projects focused on any and all kinds of plant, animal and fungus species.
VALUE: Maximum grant size is $25,000
GUIDELINES & ELIGIBILITY:
Applications must be submitted in English and budgets must be quoted in US Dollars
Project must be directly related to an endangered species. The Fund will use the IUCN Redlist as the primary guide to the conservation status of a given species.
Priority will be given to those projects that support the professional development of young conservationists
The Fund is primarily interested in supporting conservation work in the field (such as survey work and data gathering, direct action, recovery management, training and the like), focusing on the species in its natural habitat.
Generally the Fund would prefer to support projects which focus on a single species, but it also recognizes that in some geographic and taxonomic circumstances it makes more sense to group a number of species
Application must be made online via the Fund’s web based system.
