Grants of up to $2,500 to USA, Canada, and International investigators affiliated with academic institutions, nonprofit or conservation organizations, or accredited zoos for wildlife conservation efforts. The purpose of this program is to enhance understanding of endangered, threatened, and rare species and their habitats, and to support zoological research that will directly benefit captive animal management.
Many projects funded by the Wildlife Conservation Fund have been education based with an eye to helping communities learn about the wildlife around them. In addition, the fund has lent support to help conserve some of the lesser known taxa such as endangered reptiles and amphibians.
Animals native to Michigan have garnered special attention from the Wildlife Conservation Fund and conservation fund monies have supported projects ranging from installing interpretive graphics at Palomita Reserve in Grand Haven, Michigan to characterizing what bacteria are normally found in salamander habitats in the Great Lakes region.
Project categories include but are not limited to:
-Community Awareness and Cooperation
-Capacity Building: Training and Development
-Research: Species Census, Tagging, etc.
Research projects may be in situ, ex-situ, or a combination of both.
Information gained from the project must be made available to the public.
