Applications for the 2016 Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) Conservation Team Awards are now open! CLP aims to advance biodiversity conservation globally by building the leadership capabilities of early-career conservation professionals working in high-priority places with limited capacity to address conservation issues. This partnership initiative, including BirdLife International, Fauna & Flora International and the Wildlife Conservation Society, has been helping young conservationists across the world achieve their goals for 30 years.
“I have found every step of my relationship with the CLP to be life changing. Through the CLP, I have met and received mentorship from seasoned conservation professionals that have in no small measures added immeasurable value to my career far beyond my expectations.” Fidelis Atuo, CLP Future Conservationist Award Winner.
The programme works toward its aims by offering awards, training and mentoring support. CLP offers three levels of Conservation Awards:
Future Conservationist Awards: Up to $12,500 per project.
Conservation Follow-Up Awards: Up to $20,000 per project and available only to previous CLP Future Conservationist Award winners.
Conservation Leadership Awards: Up to $40,000 per project and available only to previous CLP Follow-Up Award winners.
