The OBC Conservation Fund invites applications for grants for conservation work and conservation awareness projects.
OBC Conservation Committee will consider all proposals for these awards that aim to promote bird conservation in the Oriental Bird Club region. Preference will be given to proposals addressing these priority objectives:
Projects benefiting Globally Threatened bird species
Projects benefiting threatened habitats that are important for bird conservation
Projects undertaken by Asian residents
Awards of £1000 (exceptionally £1500) are available for projects involving threatened bird species and their habitats or to raise conservation awareness. These projects should be completed within 12-18 months.
These include the Expedition Award for student expeditions that add to our knowledge of threatened birds in the region in which applicants should seek to utilise local counterparts and have an emphasis on training.
