Proposals that focus on the following themes are encouraged:
- Specific and defensible priority actions to avert a species decline;
- Projects that include the active involvement of early career conservationists;
- Projects that support conservation leaders from the countries where the species occur
Typical proposal requests should be less than $30,000; however, applicants may request up to $50,000. Successful applicants may use awarded funds over one or two years. Up to 20 percent of the total can be used as a stipend for the applicant and/or team members. (Please see the Preparing Your Proposal page regarding stipend eligibility and other budgetary guidance.) All applications should include a clear review of the state of knowledge about the topic and a plan for evaluating the outcomes of the proposed work. Preference will be given to proposals that include feasible plans to demonstrate change in key, quantifiable indicators of: for example, reduction in drivers of population decline (e.g. unsustainable hunting, fishing or logging); or increase in numbers, degree of protection, or connectivity of populations of the target species. For any questions, please write to email@example.com.
When applying for this RFP, please select Wildlife in the Lens dropdown menu on the Project Description tab of the application. The deadline for application is 10th July with decisions announced by November.
