Thanks to our generous donors who helped make our year-end fundraising goal a success, we are now offering a Mid-Year Established Conservationist Grant Program for spring of 2022. Online applications will open on January 31, 2022.

We will provide grants for global, wildlife-saving work being done by mid-career conservationists from underrepresented groups, such as women, people of color, Indigenous people and those from disadvantaged communities.

A Conservation Nation Grant will place a strong emphasis on ensuring that grant recipients will share their work and knowledge and become mentors for our emerging conservationists and youth conservationists.

  • Successful applicants will be notified by March 21, 2022.
  • Formal public announcement of grantees will be April 5, 2022, and funds will be disbursed shortly thereafter.

Funding Criteria:

  • Special consideration will be given to wildlife-saving work being done by mid-career conservationists from underrepresented groups, such as women, people of color, Indigenous people, and those from disadvantaged communities.
  • The applicant must demonstrate that the funds will be used for or to support on the ground conservation activities or research conducted in situ for wildlife conservation.
  • The applicant must show innovation and creativity in their work.
