Conservation Leadership Programme Future Conservationist Awards

Conservation Leadership Programme Future Conservationist Awards


The Conservation Leadership Programme is accepting applications for its 2019 Future Conservationist Award to support projects in the Latin American & Caribbean region focused on either tree species or non-avian marine species based in seaward habitats.

The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) is a training and capacity building programme that targets individuals from developing countries who are early in their conservation career and demonstrate leadership potential.

Working as a partnership initiative with BirdLife International, Fauna & Flora International and the Wildlife Conservation Society, CLP builds the leadership capabilities of early-career conservation professionals working in places with limited capacity to address high-priority conservation issues.

Award Information

CLP offers Future Conservationist Awards of up to US$12,500 each to develop leadership capacity of earlycareer conservationists who want to make a positive difference on the ground.

Eligibility Criteria

  • To be eligible for a CLP Future Conservationist Award, the team and project must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Nationals of a country subject to sanctions or trade restrictions imposed by the USA, UK or EU are NOT eligible to participate on a project team.
