Description
People’s Trust for Endangered Species is seeking applications for its PTES Conservation Insight Grants.
 
People’s Trust for Endangered Species has awarded grants to scientific researchers and conservationists for many years for work that is aimed at the preservation of endangered species around the world.
 
Priority Areas
 
High priority projects include:
  • Gathering evidence needed to undertake necessary mitigation work
  • Using scientific evidence to get changes made to local, national or international policy
  • Devising and testing a new methodology for monitoring a species or group of species
Priority is also given to applications for conservation and research work on species classified as endangered, critically endangered and extinct in the wild by the IUCN.
Funds will be awarded for work that seeks to either:
  • Find the critical scientific evidence that will facilitate the conservation of a species
  • Provide the answer to a key conservation question, which will enable conservationists to undertake critical conservation action
  • Undertake the implementation of a key local action which will result in a significantly, positive impact for an endangered species.
Eligibility
  • Applicants are welcomed from scientific researchers and those working in the field of practical conservation. The project leader should be based either within an NGO or a university research department.
  • These grants are suitable for research or conservation projects that focus on one or more endangered species, or their habitat.
  • Priority will be given to projects working on those species classified by the IUCN redlist as endangered, critically endangered and extinct in the wild. However applications for work on species listed as vulnerable and near-threatened will also be considered.
  • Applications will only be considered from those working in countries classified by the World Bank as low and middle-income. Please go to the World Bank web page to check if your country applies.
  • Preference is given to applicants working in their own country rather than UK or other western nationals working abroad.
  • Preference will be given to applicants who have a proven, successful history working on the species and/or in that region.
  • The project should be up to two years in duration.
  • The project should have a clear end point. If aspects of a project are likely to continue over the long-term, the applicant should make clear how they will be funded.
  • The Trust will consider funding a project in its entirety or jointly with other bodies or organisations. They are prepared to award funding subject to other funding bids being successful.

High priority projects include:

  • Gathering evidence needed to undertake necessary mitigation work
  • Using scientific evidence to get changes made to local, national or international policy
  • Devising and testing a new methodology for monitoring a species or group of species

Priority is also given to applications for conservation and research work on species classified as endangered, critically endangered and extinct in the wild by the IUCN.
