African Bird Club Conservation Programme
Please note that some of the details on this page and in particular the deadlines for the receipt of applications for awards have changed as of February 2010.
The ABC's Conservation Programme supports small to medium sized conservation projects in Africa. Since 1996, it has supported a wide variety of projects including training courses, research into threatened species and promotion and awareness of conservation issues in Africa. The full list of past projects and some of the final reports can be seen here.
We currently raise money from sales, donations and corporate sponsorship. Our current budget stands at over £10,000 per annum and the Club welcomes applications for Conservation Awards from individuals or institutions and for the annual Expedition Award. However because demands on the fund are great we do have to turn some proposals down so it is important that applications follow the guidelines below.
ABC Expedition Award - Maximum Grant £2,000
The African Bird Club gives one annual Expedition Award for larger, more ambitious projects. Funding for these projects is often available from a number of sources. Applications for Expedition Awards must be received by the cut off dates shown below. Please download the full guidelines by clicking 'How to apply'.
