Wildlife Acoustics’ mission is to support efforts in conservation and environmental stewardship. Wildlife Acoustics wants to enable those involved in animal biology, research and conservation to do their best work easily and quickly. To that end, Wildlife Acoustics has established a grant program to support bioacoustics research efforts from chiropteran, avian, terrestrial, amphibious and marine wildlife, to everything else in between. 

Consideration will be given to projects that meet the following criteria:

  • Projects must make significant use of bioacoustics for data collection and/or analysis.
  • The work must advance scientific knowledge and contribute to long-term conservation. 
  • The grant award must have a significant impact on the success of the project.
