The Salamander Foundation's Environment Program seeks to recognize the forms, functions and interactions of natural systems and is primarily concerned with pollution and its implications for human and ecosystem health, including:

  • Environmental contamination: remediation and prevention
  • 'Best practices' in resource management
  • Management/conservation measures at a watershed, regional or transboundary level

The Foundation proactively seeks projects which correspond with its primary interests and does not normally accept applications without prior agreement. Before applying, prospective grantees must first contact the Foundation by telephone to determine whether the objectives of the project proposal reflect the interests of the Foundation.
