This funding opportunity seeks to support organisations whose projects protect a threatened species or habitat and have a link to the outdoor user. All projects must involve hands-on conservation work. This funding opportunity will consider projects that will produce the following outcomes: (1) conservation measures addressing specific issues and root causes; (2) involvement / engagement of local people and (3) education and communication. Preference will be granted to projects that address the following key areas: (1) protect, enhance or restore threatened key species, habitats or broader ecosystems in ‘wild’ areas. This may include for example moorland, hills, mountains, coasts, rivers, forest, grassland, peatland and ocean areas. The project must identify and address the key threats to the species, habitats or broader ecosystems, and how it will protect and /or enhance them. Innovative solutions to ‘old’ problems will be welcomed; (2) consider the needs of the outdoor enthusiast: the project must enhance the experience of outdoor enthusiasts as well as protecting the identified species, habitat or broader ecosystem from any negative impact by their visits.
Projects may, for example, enhance a visitor’s experience by protecting a threatened species they might then see, or protect an area by ensuring trails / rock faces / waterways and /or associated information / education keeps visitors from damaging fragile habitats or disturbing vulnerable wildlife.
Conservation bodies which are nominated by Association members can apply for grants.
Any country around the world except North America is eligible.
