African Bird Club Conservation Programme: The ABC's Conservation Programme supports small to medium sized conservation projects in Africa.

Since 1996, it has supported a wide variety of projects including training courses, research into threatened species and promotion and awareness of conservation issues in Africa.

It currently raise money from sales, donations and corporate sponsorship.

The current budget stands at £10,000 per annum and the Club welcomes applications for Conservation Awards from individuals or institutions and for the annual Expedition Award of up to £1000.

The Club aims to encourage as wide a range of ideas as possible.

Many different types of project can be considered so long as there is a clear conservation objective.

These could include:

  • Survey and research into African birds;

  • Educational projects or training courses;

  • Production of guides to the common birds of a country in local languages;

  • Interpretation material for nature reserves;

  • Other ideas will be considered.


    As the fund is small, several restrictions will apply:

  • Applicants must be normally resident in Africa;

  • Ideally, the requested grant from ABC should be a major part of the project budget;

  • Requests for contributions towards academic fees will not be considered;

  • However funding for field projects that are being carried out as part of an academic study may be considered if funding from the academic institution is not available;
