The Cleveland Zoological Society is currently accepting applications for its Asia Seed Grants Program to support field conservation and research projects in Asia.

Ideal projects have clear and direct conservation impact, positively affect local people and create opportunities for capacity building in country.

Focus Areas

  • Wildlife protection (law enforcement, illegal wildlife trade issues, etc.)
  • Human wildlife conflict mitigation
  • Development and promotion of sustainable environmental practices
  • Habitat protection and restoration (terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems)
  • Capacity-building, education/training, community-based conservation and development
  • Conservation biology, ecology and natural history studies (terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems)

Award Amount: $1,000-$3,500

  • Projects that designate local/public education/awareness as a significant program outcome must include an evaluation component.
  • Projects should begin in the year that they are applying for funding, (but not before funds are to be awarded) and contain a clearly defined beginning and end point.
  • Funds will not be awarded for elements of a project that will have already occurred before awards are made.
  • Although exceptions can be made, ongoing costs such as salaries of permanent staff and other administrative costs are generally not considered.
  • Funds to cover contingencies or indirect costs are not granted.
  • Partial funding of a project may be considered if a particular component of the project can be supported and completed independently, or if it is made clear that additional funding has been obtained or is being sought from other sources to cover remaining costs.
  • Proposals requesting more than the maximum amount of funds allowed for the specific grant program will not be accepted.
  • Subsequent phases of previously funded projects may be submitted.
  • Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is not required to be a collaborator for a project to be eligible for funding.
