For more than 35 years Holohil has supported endangered species research and educational work for a variety of agencies and researchers. During that time, we have donated transmitters predominately for bat and raptor research. While we still have a strong commitment to these groups of animals, we wish to extend our support to other species that have not previously been included. To this end, we are extending our support to research projects that are of high value for their species, have a sound research design, and have a positive conservation intention. In 2016, we introduced our new Holohil Grant Program (HGP), which aims to offer Holohil transmitters at a reduced (or no) cost to projects deserving of support. Since its inception, the HGP has awarded more than $35,000.00 in transmitters to projects around the globe.

Holohil Grant Program would like to support projects that generally meet the following criteria:

  • The project makes significant use of Holohil transmitters for data collection.
  • The project aims to advance scientific knowledge.
  • The project contributes to conservation.
  • The project engages/educates the public.
  • The project involves underrepresented study species of high research or conservation value

Here’s how it works

Each quarter, Holohil will be supporting projects by donating up to CAD$2,500.00 toward the purchase of Holohil transmitters. We will also pay all shipping charges (Note: importation duties and taxes are the receiver’s responsibility).

All we ask in return is a short (approx. one-page) report/update with photos of your work using our transmitters which we can post on the Holohil Systems Ltd. website. It’s that simple!
