The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) is now accepting applications to support projects in the Asia Pacific region focused on either tree species or non-avian marine species based in seaward habitats. Funding will support 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. The deadline for applications is 26 November 2017.

Eligible countries for this funding round are: American Samoa, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Kiribati, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Maldives, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nauru, Nepal, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Timor-Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, Vietnam.

In this funding round, a set of CLP Future Conservationist Awards, each worth $12,500, will be granted to teams of early-careers conservationists to conduct projects on target species that are listed as Data Deficient, Vulnerable, Endangered or Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List. Among other criteria, projects must take place in one of the eligible countries, be led (or co-led) by a national of one of these countries, involve at least three team members and last no more than 12 months.
