Overview:

The WAVE Foundation at the Newport Aquarium has a team of staff members and volunteers who serve to raise and distribute funds for local, regional, national or global conservation efforts. These funds are distributed in the form of an Aquatic Conservation Grant (ACG).


Our goal is to maximize projects, events and initiatives which support aquatic life, natural resources and wildlife on a local, regional, national and global scope. 

The Conservation Fund Committee accepts applications throughout the year with no start or end date. However, we meet twice a year to review grant requests. Please submit applications at least two weeks in advance to ensure proper time to review. The Committee will then meet to discuss any new grant requests received.

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

Eligibility:

  • We are looking for conservation initiatives on a local, regional, national or global scale that fits into the WAVE Foundation’s mission of “Promoting the Welfare of Aquatic Life through Advocacy, Volunteerism and Education.”

  • Foreign projects are eligible, as long as the project fits into our mission and assists with our goals.

Preferences:

  • We do not discard any grant that support wildlife conservation in general; however, we are more geared toward aquatic conservation and do take these grants as priority.
    • Remember, our goal is to maximize projects, events and initiatives which support aquatic life, natural resources and wildlife on a local, regional, national and global scope.
    • There are many other Zoos with similar programs who more readily support non-aquatic based wildlife.

Ineligibility:

  • What we do not fund:
    • Professional development,
    • Tuition costs,
    • Salaries for staff, interns or volunteers, and 
    • Travel not associated with funded projects.
