Work eligible for funding can include scientific research, practical habitat management, reintroduction and monitoring programmes and educational projects, with priority given to those projects that focus on sound research or conservation work that is likely to lead directly to practical conservation outcomes with a lasting benefit to the species and habitat concerned.
Projects that require funds to promote the dissemination/public awareness within local communities and/or to policy makers of conservation strategies based on sound research will also be considered.
The deadline for applications is 31 October 2018.
