Community Conservation Grants Now Open
Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife Community Conservation Grants are now open for applications. If you are working to preserve a piece of Australian cultural heritage, helping to restore a patch of habitat, connecting more people with our national parks or doing research on a threatened Aussie species you can apply for a Community Conservation Grant from the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife.
“Organisations and individuals from all across Australia are eligible to receive funding through these grants” said Kylie Piper, Projects & Education Manager for the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife. “We would love to get applications from every state so we can really understand what types of community conservation work is happening and help fund essential projects that restore habitat and species, preserve our cultural treasures and improve our National Parks for everyone to enjoy”.
The small grants round will be open for applications from December 14, 2019 until February 14, 2020.
Key areas of focus for this year’s grants are:
• Land and Water – Protection, restoration, rehabilitation and revegetation of degraded habitats to ensure their ability to sustain native species.
• Threatened Species – Scientific research with tangible conservation outcomes and on-ground works to conserve Australia’s threatened species.
• Cultural Heritage – Conserving and celebrating Australia’s cultural heritage as part of the gift we leave to future generations.
• Parks for People – Improving National Park facilities for the enjoyment of all, to foster and encourage the appreciation of nature.
Applications for the Community Conservation Grants are now online and individuals, NGOs or government departments working in these areas are all eligible to apply for funding for projects commencing in 2020.
