The Mohamed bin Zayed (MBZ) Species Conservation Fund is inviting applications for its grant program to provide targeted grants to individual species conservation initiatives, recognize leaders in the field and elevate the importance of species in the broader conservation debate.
The focus is global and eligibility for grants will extend to all plant, animal and fungi species conservation efforts, without discrimination on the basis of region or selected species.
The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund is an innovative philanthropy providing small grants to boots-on-the-ground, get-your-hands-dirty, in-the-field species conservation projects for the world’s most threatened species.
Through innovative micro-financing, the MBZ Fund empowers conservationists to fight the extinction crisis instead of bureaucracy and red-tape. To date the Fund has awarded over 2000 grants to a diverse range of species across the world.
The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund is a philanthropic endowment established to do the following:
- Provide targeted grants to individual species conservation initiatives
- Recognize leaders in the field of species conservation; and
- Elevate the importance of species in the broader conservation debate.
- The Fund maximum grant size is $25,000, and any application asking for more than this from the Fund will be rejected.
- Who can apply?
- Anyone directly involved in species conservation can apply to the Fund for a grant.
- Language: Applications must be submitted in English.
- Currency: Budgets must be submitted in US Dollars.
- Conservation status: The Fund was established to support species conservation work, and so if project is not about an endangered species it is probably not worth while submitting an application.
