Auckland Zoo’s Small Grants in New Zealand

Auckland Zoo’s Small Grants in New Zealand

The Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund Small Grants Programme exists to help provide relatively small levels of funding for ongoing projects or pilot programmes with clear conservation value.

​Small grants will be awarded up to a maximum of NZD$5,000. However, in most cases, successful grants will be in the region of NZD$2,000 - $4,000. The amount applied for through the programme should represent a minimum of 25% of the project's overall budget.

Auckland Zoo is pleased to announce that the next round of the small grants programme will concentrate on innovative projects in Africa focusing on mitigating human-wildlife conflict that have tangible conservation outcomes for threatened wildlife.

What type of projects are eligible for funding?

Eligible projects must:

  • Have a clear conservation value

  • Be based in New Zealand or in a developing country (although applicants can be based anywhere in the world)

  • Be aligned with the geographic or taxonomic scope of the current small grants round (if applicable). From time to time our Small Grants Programme is focussed on a particular region of the world (e.g the South Pacific) or a particular group of species (e.g. Invertebrates).

    What is not eligible for funding?

    General items not considered eligible:

  • Projects based in non-developing countries (except New Zealand)

  • Projects not aligned with the geographic or taxonomic focus of
    the current round of grants (if applicable)

  • Pure research (i.e. research projects must demonstrate applied benefit to conservation and/or target an identified conservation need)

  • The applicant's attendance at a conference, seminar, workshop or meeting

    ​​Specific examples of items not eligible within an application:

  • Thesis production costs

  • Retrospective costs

  • Prize money

  • Entertainment costs

  • Social or networking functions

  • Fundraising or general income-growth purposes

  • Debt servicing or financial costs

  • Office equipment (unless an essential element in completing field work)

  • Internships and volunteer programmes (unless benefiting an identified conservation need.)​​​​​​​

    Project applications will score more highly during the selection process if they:

  • Are likely to have a direct conservation impact

  • Are collaborative and involve a local conservation organisation

  • Are logistically feasible, and fiscally and scientifically sound​​

  • Include an assessment of how well the project achieved its conservation objectives
