Several organizations provide opportunities for Partners to access grants of small amounts of money to conduct projects on conservation of waterbirds and/or their habitats. These “Small Grants Funds” can be helpful to undertake an activity or create materials for Flyway Network Sites in a country, to cover the costs of developing a major project, or to serve as seed money that will attract co-funding. The East Asian – Australasian Flyway Partnership does not act as a provider of small funds but can assist Partners to contact existing Small Grants Funds. The following summaries and links should enable Partners to make their own inquiries. Please note that the time frames and other operational requirements vary between the Funds, typically as determined by particular national regulations. Also be aware that competition for grants may be strong and that waterbirds may be only one of the many subjects that the Fund addresses. Information on other Funds may be added to this site in the future.
- 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.
