The Royal Zoological Society of New South Wales' (RZS NSW) main focus is to foster the study and conservation of Australia's unique native fauna. 

The objective of the grants is to provide financial support for conservation-based research of Australian ecosystems that will ultimately lead to tangible outcomes for management. The scope of the research is open to terrestrial, marine and freshwater research on animals and/or plants.

In 2016 four grants are on offer. The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife is supporting two Marine Science Grants specifically to support marine research of Australian marine ecosystems on marine plants or animals. The Paddy Pallin Foundation is supporting one grant for research in terrestrial systems and one other grant open for any system, marine, terrestrial or freshwater.

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