Thu, 01/10/2020 - 10:04

Do you know of any early-career conservationists who need funding to support their work conserving the natural world?

The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) is now accepting applications for 2021 Conservation Awards. Future Conservationist Awards are worth $15,000 each and support projects in low and middle income countries and some high income islands in the Caribbean and Pacific. Funding will enable early-career conservationists to conduct scientific research, encourage and promote pro-conservation attitudes and deliver tangible results to better conserve and manage the natural world. Each project must have at least three members and all team members must have less than five years of paid conservation experience. Projects can last 3-12 months and must focus on a threatened species. In addition to project funding, CLP will invite one member of each award-winning team to their international training course where they will gain a range of conservation management and leadership skills as well as build their professional network. The application deadline is 23 October 2020.
