Deadline: 15 January 2020
The National Geographic Society is inviting applications for its “Big Cats Initiative (BCI)” to advance conservation efforts benefiting big cat populations, protecting and restoring them and their habitats via field-based, action-oriented, direct, and quantifiable strategic programs.
The goal of this fund is to identify projects that will help reduce the decline of African big cats in the wild.
BCI conducted an evidence-based analysis to assess big cat conservation in Africa, identify funding gaps, and determine a focused engagement strategy for lion conservation funding (Jacobson and Riggio, 2018).
National Geographic’s lion population priorities have more than 50 individuals currently, either have high recovery potential or are current strongholds, are not primarily based around a trophy hunting reserve, and are primarily threatened by human-wildlife conflict or livestock encroachment.
Applicants may request up to $100,000. Successful applicants may use awarded funds over one or two years.
