As part of the SAVES Challenge, the Trust is committed to directing $100 million toward creating new protected areas to save the world’s most endangered species. Through the SAVES Challenge, Rainforest Trust has the capacity to match, dollar for dollar, projects that target the establishment of protected areas for priority as Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs).

The Trust is especially focused on projects in KBAs with globally significant populations of critically endangered (CR) and endangered (EN) species so we are interested in exploring partnerships with local conservation organizations interested in establishing new protected areas in places that have either been formally recognized as KBAs or would trigger a new KBA on further evaluation.

  • Endorsement from project stakeholders, including local environmental agencies, government officials and especially communities
  • The applicant must be an NGO based in the country of the proposed protected area
  • Priority is given to proposed sites located in the tropics
  • The applicant organization should have an independent and autonomous oversight and management committee (e.g., a non-executive board) if land purchase or leasing is the proposed conservation strategy

Partnership applications should not include:

  • Overhead costs (e.g., 15% of grant amount for indirect costs)
  • Ecological monitoring or research
  • Habitat restoration (e.g., tree planting)
  • Vehicle purchases other than motorcycles
  • International travel
  • Environmental education
