CLP Call for Proposals: Project funding for tree and non-avian marine species in Asia Pacific region

October 29, 2017

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.

Deadline for applications is 26th November 2017.

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 people and last no more than 12 months.

Please the CLP website for more information about the 2018 Future Conservationist Awards including the eligibility criteria, guidelines, applications form, applications support and benefits of winning an award – including participation in CLP’s international training course.

We hope to make an additional call later in the year with a broader focus, so please watch CLP social media pages for further news. ;
