National Geographic Society: Requests for Proposals for Big Cats Conservation

Deadline: 1 October 2017

The National Geographic Society is seeking proposals for its Initiative entitled “Big Cats Conservation” to advance conservation efforts benefitting big cat populations, protecting and restoring them and their habitats via field-based, action-oriented, direct, and quantifiable strategic programs.

The goal of this RFP is to identify projects that will help halt the decline of big cats worldwide. Projects may be based in any of a broad spectrum of conservation, education, development, and scientific ventures, but projects with direct, quantifiable methods for saving big cats in their native landscapes will be most successful.

Projects may be focused around conservation, education, research, storytelling, or technology, but all applications should explicitly state the plan for evaluating the impact of the work.

Priorities

Priority will be given to projects that aim to do one or more of the following:

  • run anti-poaching programs;
  • perform interventions to reduce big cat mortalities;
  • test new technology;
  • establish economic incentives for local people to ensure long-term survival of big cats; or
  • for cheetahs, seek to fulfill the recommendations from formal regional strategies and national action plans.

Funding Information

Applicants may request from $10,000 to $150,000 to be used over one or two years, of which up to 20 percent of the total can be used as a stipend for the applicant or team members, and up to 15 percent of which can be used for institutional overhead (applicable only for awarded grants of at least $50,000).

How to Apply

Applicants can apply via given website.
