Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund

Grants of up to $25,000 to USA, Canada, and International conservationists to research any threatened or poorly known plant, animal, and fungus species. Priority will be given to species facing a high risk of extinction, especially endangered and critically endangered species, as well as species with limited information available. Priority will be given to projects supporting the professional development of young conservationists.
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 recognized, and so a few grants may be given to projects which focus on ex situ conservation work in certain circumstances.
The Fund 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.
Depending on the type of conservation project and the work involved, the Fund will consider covering salary expenses or travel costs for a specific project. This would usually be for support staff in developing countries. However, this can only be as part of the overall grant as officially applied for.

Grants are for a maximum of $25,000 for each project, and any application asking for more than this from the Fund will be rejected.
It is possible to apply for continuation funding, but currently this requires a new application. This will be assessed according to the project and the long-term benefit to the species in question.
