    Kaytee Research and Conservation Grant


    Melanie Colón

    ###NOTE - as of 11/20/2018#####

    The Kaytee Avian Foundation was not taking grant applications, but indicated that there was an ongoing effort to reinstate their research grant program in the future. We'll keep checking on this one and update this listing as we learn more. 

    ###########################

     

    All projects must fit one or more of the following criteria:

    Wisconsin based companion or wild bird education, conservation or research project.

    U.S. based companion or wild bird education, conservation or research project.

    International based companion or wild bird education, conservation or research project.

    Education

    The Kaytee Avian Foundation supports educational programs that will teach people of all ages the importance of caring for birds and their environment. The programs are varied, but include curriculum development, audio-visual materials, manipulative materials, and other related support materials.

    Conservation

    The Kaytee Avian Foundation supports programs that will encourage positive avian conservation efforts. The programs encourage people to be environmentally conscious and aware of what is going on around them. Projects in this area encourage the conservation of avian habitat and key parcels of land. They must involve people in a positive and culturally appropriate manner.

    Research

    The Kaytee Avian Foundation supports programs that will conduct sound, scientific research on specific topics with a measure of predicted success or knowledge gained. Avian medical research projects are considered as well as avian research projects that are aimed at the protection of endangered species. Other programs supported must improve our understanding of pet birds and their counterparts in the wild. These programs will help ensure that people will be able to enjoy birds for future generations.
