In 2018, The Alongside Wildlife Foundation awarded over $10,000 to wildlife conservation projects around the world. We are now pleased to announce a 2019 Request for Proposals specifically for projects that are led by or will increase involvement of minorities and members of marginalized groups in wildlife conservation. Beyond this overarching goal, The Alongside Wildlife Foundation will support projects that involve:
1) collecting data (including basic natural history information) that can inform plans that allow people to live alongside wildlife
2) communicating science to communities with the goal of reducing human/wildlife conflict, and/or
3) implementing science-based strategies for living alongside wildlife populations.
Total Funding Available: We anticipate providing up to $10,000 to 1-2 projects.
How to Apply: E-mail a completed proposal (please visit https://alongsidewildlifefoundation.org/the-alongside-wildlife-foundation-2019-request-for-proposals/ for instructions) to admin@AlongsideWildlifeFoundation.org. If you represent a small or international organization include letters written on your behalf by independent institutions. If you are a graduate student, include a letter of support from your advisor.
Due Date: November 8th 2019
Evaluation: Proposals will be evaluated by a committee formed for this purpose.
The Alongside Wildlife Foundation is supported through a huge (and growing) network of small donors. That makes a recurring donation of $1 or $2 important and valuable to us while we find and fill the important niches overlooked by the huge conservation institutions and agencies. If you feel our mission is important, we hope you will join our grassroots base.
