Projects proposing a positive impact on other threatened species and associated habitats will be favoured (collateral benefits). The Foundation will favour projects of global relevance (globally threatened species) versus projects protecting species locally or regionally threatened.

The Foundation favours conservation projects with reasonable budget in relation to proposed activities. Costs/benefits ratio will be an important criterion during project selection. Funding for the organisation’s general costs will be limited and funding preferably spent where field activities are implemented. Long distance travels should be limited and only take place when local expertise is not available. Management costs (overheads) must represent less than 10% of the budget.
