About the Grant
The Conservation Nation Grant Program provides funding to help save endangered animals and their ecosystems by building a stronger, more diverse community of conservation practitioners. We believe there is great conservation progress to be made by broadening the field of committed individuals working to address the global wildlife conservation challenge.
Conservation Nation supports innovative, on-the-ground conservation around the world by practitioners from traditionally marginalized communities. Our focus is on helping foster conservation solutions that serve the needs of both nature and people and in terrestrial, marine, or freshwater ecosystems that support a wide range of biodiversity.
In addition to providing project funding, we support our grantees with ongoing professional development and capacity-building opportunities to ensure their growth and success so that they stay and thrive in the field of conservation.
We also place a strong emphasis on ensuring that grant recipients share their work and knowledge and become mentors for our Youth Conservationists.
Conservationists are eligible for funding up to US$10,000 for a grant period of one to two years.
