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.
To that end, the fund will award grants of up to $25,000 in support of plant, animal, and fungi species conservation efforts without discrimination on the basis of region or selected species. Priority will be given to in situ species conservation work, but the fund will consider an ex situ project where it is demonstrated to be critical to the survival of the species concerned.
Anyone directly involved in species conservation is eligible to apply.
See the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and an FAQ.
