Zoos Victoria is a not-for-profit zoo-based conservation organisation dedicated to fighting extinction. Our pursuit of tangible conservation outcomes for threatened species includes a major focus on engaging communities (people) in ways that enable them to take action to help wildlife.
The International Conservation Grants target projects that focus on alleviating community-driven threats to wildlife through behaviour change. The project must result in measurable outcomes for wildlife, as a result of specific community action(s). The target audience (people) can be an in situ community or a community not located in the immediate locale of the wildlife. Zoos Victoria defines an in situ community as a community of local people who are directly impacted by, or directly impact a project.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Wildlife impact must be located outside Australia.
- The target audience for the behaviour change can be located in situ or not located in the locale of the wildlife.
- Projects need to demonstrate how they are facilitating community action and/or changing behaviour in their target audience in order to alleviate threats to wildlife.
- Measurable outcomes for people and wildlife must be tangible/measurable targets, not just an “increase”.
- Projects with a conservation education focus must demonstrate tangible outcome for wildlife ‐ raising awareness/knowledge alone does not change behaviour.
- Project timeline must not exceed 12 months.
- Projects that include reintroduction or relocation processes must be endorsed by relevant government bodies.
- Project must ensure that the welfare of animals in the wild is paramount and in accordance with governing welfare agencies.
- If the budget includes salaries, Zoos Victoria will only support these for local/national organisation staff (not expatriate staff).
- Salaries must not exceed 40% of the funding requested from Zoos Victoria.
