$5,000 to $25,000 in Conservation Funding 

Conservation FundingHey Funds Fans, I found a brand new (new to me, anyway) funder!  Hooray 🙂

The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund is a significant philanthropic endowment established to do the following:

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’s reach is truly global, and its species interest is non-discriminatory. It 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, subject to the approval of an independent evaluation committee.

In addition, the Fund will recognize leaders in the field of species conservation and scientific research to ensure their important work is given the attention it deserves and to elevate the importance of species in global conservation discourse.

If you are involved in direct species conservation project and would like to apply for a grant, you must apply online. Grants range from $5,000 to $25,000.  Deadline: June 30th, 2013.

There it is, folks.  Go and get it!  Sign up on the right to receive blog updates to your in-box.
