The Neotropical Grassland Conservancy (NGC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the conservation of grasslands, gallery forests, wetlands, and associated ecosystems in South America. The NGC supports Latin American researchers by providing grants and equipment for conservation research or education. Proposals are judged on merit and feasibility, conservation impact, and how closely the project meets the mission of the NGC.

The NGC has the following three funding programs, for more information visit www.conservegrassland.org.
