Papoose Conservation Wildlife Foundation Invites Applications for Youth Conservation Grants

The Papoose Conservation Wildlife Foundation is unique in its focus on both wildlife science and children’s experiences in nature and seeks to merge these two goals with the aim of helping children become the scientists of tomorrow working to preserve wildlife diversity.

To advance this mission, the organization 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 support of two separate categories:

Children in Nature — Programs aimed at providing opportunities for children to explore nature or expand their 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 that connect children to less-recognized species or habitats.

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