The Future for Wildlife Seed Grants Program provides funds to support field conservation projects in Africa and Asia. Annual awards, ranging from $1000 to $3500, are made to conservation and field research initiatives that will help secure a future for wildlife and educational or cultural activities that positively impact wildlife, habitats and human communities.
Ideal projects have a clear and direct conservation impact, positively affect local people, and create opportunities for capacity building in-country. Projects focusing on the following areas of special interest to the Zoo are strongly encouraged to apply:
Wildlife protection (anti-poaching, illegal wildlife trade issues, etc.)
Human wildlife conflict mitigation
Development and promotion of sustainable environmental practices
Habitat protection and restoration (terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems)
Capacity-building (education/training, community-based conservation, etc.)
Conservation biology, ecology and natural history studies (terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems)
Projects that focus on taxa/issues targeted by the Zoo’s key wildlife conservation programs or represent a species/taxa found at the Zoo will be given priority.
