Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels

National Geographic calls for grant proposals on the theme “Recovery of Species on the Brink of Extinction”

National Geographic in collaboration with the IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC) is providing grants for the recovery of species on the brink of extinction.

Proposals that focus on the following three themes are encouraged:

Specific and defensible priority actions to avert a species decline;

Projects that include the active involvement of early career conservationists; and

Projects that support conservation leaders from the countries where the species occur.

A typical proposal request will be for less than US$ 30 000.  However, applicants may request up to US$ 50 000.  The application deadline is 10 July 2018, with decisions to be announced by November.
