Recommended Posts

The Draper Natural History Museum and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation are pleased to announce the 2019 call for proposals addressing Greater Yellowstone Biodiversity Research and Public Education. Our objective is to award a $100,000 prize to stimulate scientific exploration and public education that will expand the knowledge and understanding of biological diversity in Greater Yellowstone and foster concrete actions to safeguard biodiversity in conjunction with continued social and economic development. The project will be conducted in the magnificent Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and we encourage projects with global implications. We are interested in proposals with a trans-boundary approach, recognizing that effective biodiversity conservation crosses geo-political/ jurisdictional, academic disciplinary, and economic and social boundaries.


For 2019, the Camp Monaco Prize jury is seeking proposals in one or more of four broad categories:

1. Understanding current patterns of biodiversity in landscapes of Greater Yellowstone and predicting changes related to current and expected social, demographic, economic, and environmental dynamics

2. Assessing ecological, social, demographic, and economic impacts of biodiversity changes, e.g., restoration/reintroduction of native species and/or invasion of nonnative species in Greater Yellowstone

3. Developing trans-boundary conservation strategies for species and their habitats in Greater Yellowstone

4. Synthesizing and disseminating existing information about the above topics to the public


Proposals are due by April 15, 2019 and the winning project will be announced in June 2019. The Camp Monaco Prize will be awarded at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, WY in September 2019 in the presence of officials representing each of the partner organizations. Prior to submission you may direct questions to Dr. Charles Preston at cpreston@centerofthewest.org

Please share widely among your professional networks.
