Mohamed Bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund - Providing Global Grants to Individual Species Conservation Initiatives

Mohamed Bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund - Providing Global Grants to Individual Species Conservation Initiatives

Applicants are invited to apply for the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund that has been established to provide targeted grants to individual species conservation initiatives, recognize leaders in the field and elevate the importance of species in the broader conservation debate.

Its focus is global and eligibility for grants will extend to all plant, animal and fungi species conservation efforts, without discrimination on the basis of region or selected species.

The Fund intends to be as flexible and accommodating as possible when reviewing applications, and to take into account as many different factors as is reasonable when assessing the merit of a suggested project.

To support this and to try to streamline the application process, the review process is kept comparatively simple.

The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund is a philanthropic endowment established to do the following:

  • 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.
  • The Fund’s reach is truly global, and its species interest is non-discriminatory.
  • It is open to applications for funding support from conservationists based in all parts of the world, and will potentially support projects focused on any and all kinds of plant, animal and fungus species, subject to the approval of an independent evaluation committee.

    Funding Information
  • The Fund maximum grant size is $25,000, and any application asking for more than this from the Fund will be rejected.
  • The total budget of a project can be higher if there are other sources of funding.

    Eligibility Criteria
  • Anyone directly involved in species conservation can apply to the Fund for a grant.
  • The Fund will consider grants for the conservation of any threatened or poorly known animal, plant or fungus species.
  • Language: Applications must be submitted in English.
  • Currency: Budgets must be submitted
    in US Dollars.
  • In situ conservation: Generally the Fund is primarily interested in providing support to in situ conservation work in the field (such as survey work and data gathering, direct action, recovery management, training and the like), focusing on the species in its natural habitat.
  • However, the importance of ex situ work (genetic analysis, workshops, ex situ populations etc) is also recognised, and so a few grants may be given to projects which focus on ex situ conservation work in certain circumstances.
  • Core costs: The Fund will not contribute to the core running costs of an organisation or administrative overheads, and yet does recognise that sometimes support salaries, stipends, per diems and project related living costs can be a vital part of in situ conservation work.
  • Species: Generally the Fund would prefer to support projects which focus on a single species, but it also recognises that in some geographic and taxonomic circumstances it makes more sense to group a number of species.
