The Alongside Wildlife Foundation has announced a Request for Proposals specifically for projects that are led by or will increase the involvement of minorities and members of marginalized groups in wildlife conservation.
It is intended to support proposals that have the potential to reduce the cancer burden in local communities, while also being potentially transferable to other low- or middle-income settings.
This is a seed grant program, meaning they prioritize projects that have not yet started or are within their first year. Projects should focus on terrestrial and shoreline-associated animals (including invertebrates).
Beyond the overarching goal, the Alongside Wildlife Foundation will support projects that involve:
- Collecting data (including basic natural history information) that can inform plans that allow people to live alongside wildlife;
- Communicating science to communities with the goal of reducing human/wildlife conflict, and/or;
- Implementing science-based strategies for living alongside wildlife populations.
Grant size: $2,000 USD.
Deadline: September 15th, 2022
