Overview:

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.

Overview

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)

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • Requests for funds should provide adequate information for evaluation of the project and the specific request, including a detailed experimental design and methodology.
  • Projects that designate local/public education/awareness as a significant program outcome must include an evaluation component.
  • Projects should begin in the year that they are applying for funding, (but not before funds are to be awarded) and contain a clearly defined beginning and end point.
  • Partial funding of a project may be considered if a particular component of the project can be supported and completed independently, or if it is made clear that additional funding has been obtained or is being sought from other sources to cover remaining costs.
  • Subsequent phases of previously funded projects may be submitted.
  • Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is not required to be a collaborator for a project to be eligible for funding.

Preferences:

Ineligibility:

  • Funds will not be awarded for elements of a project that will have already occurred before awards are made.
  • Although exceptions can be made, ongoing costs such as salaries of permanent staff and other administrative costs are generally not considered.
  • Funds to cover contingencies or indirect costs are not granted.
  • Proposals requesting more than the maximum amount of funds allowed for the specific grant program will not be accepted.
