The ‘Asian Waterbird Conservation Fund’ has been established to provide financial support to projects at sites of importance for migratory waterbirds in the East Asian – Australasian Flyway. Cathay Pacific placed an initial donation of HK$500,000 (approx. US$65,000) into the Fund which is administered by WWF Hong Kong. At present, the maximum amount that can be applied for each project shall not exceed US$4,000. Eleven projects have been funded since the first round of applications in June 2006. You may visit the website for details. There will be a single call for applications to the Fund each year with the deadline currently being 31 October 2010.
