1) Objective

  • Theme 1: Climate Change – Climate change is one of the most significant challenges to biodiversity conservation, yet its impact and effect on wildlife are still largely unknown. The Foundation encourages projects that strive to increase the understanding of climate change effects on threatened wildlife and their habitats, and that generate local solutions to this global phenomenon. Projects that include components or mechanisms of carbon offset will be prioritised.
  • Theme 2: Marine Conservation – Marine ecosystems provide a range of critical and undervalued ecosystem services that are fundamental to the health and stability of our society. However, overexploitation, pollution, and other forms of anthropogenic disturbances continued to threaten the marine wildlife of Asia. The Foundation welcomes projects that focuses on protecting our delicate marine environment.
  • Theme 3: Endangered Terrestrial and Freshwater Wildlife – Endangered Asian species continues to be imperilled by habitat loss, population decline, various forms of pollution, overharvesting, trafficking, and numerous other anthropogenic influences, which many scientists believe are leading up to the sixth mass extinction event. Given the complex yet sometimes specific conservation needs of each taxa, the Foundation encourages projects to proactively address conservation needs of threatened terrestrial and freshwater species in Asia through scientific studies, conservation programmes or public participation.

2) Eligibility

Principal Investigator (PI), Deputy PI and Co-Investigator(s): Each applicant can submit only one application as the Principal Investigator of a project and act as PI in not more than two concurrent projects funded by the Foundation.

3) Location

The Foundation solicits proposals worldwide, but the proposed work must be conducted in countries or regions in Asia according to United Nations Statistical Division plus Papua New Guinea, higher priority will be given to projects from Eastern, Southern and South-Eastern Asia. Coastal countries connected to Asia where funding is limited and with threatened wide-ranging Asian species (e.g. Far East Russian western gray whales), will be considered.

4) Budget

Project duration and total funding: Regular projects: lasting between 1-2 years, average funding granted is usually between around HK$250,000 to HK$300,000, although there is no upper limit; Multiple-year projects: lasting between 3-5 years, funding is capped at HK$1,000,000 for the entire project.

5) Application

The application period is between on 1 December 2023 and 31 January 2024. All applications must be submitted online.
