Zoos Victoria’s International Conservation Grants build on our longstanding commitment to international conservation partnerships. The grants recognise engaging with and building the capacity of people to save wildlife is a significant challenge, and one that we believe is essential if we are to secure sustainable long-term conservation outcomes for wildlife. Grant bids will be accepted up to AUD 20,000 for approved 12 month projects.
The 2015 grants need to be themed ‘Wildlife Conservation through Community Engagement’, recognising the importance of engaging people in protecting wildlife, whilst building social capacity, both of which are critical for the conservation of wildlife. The three successful projects chosen each demonstrate meaningful on-ground benefits to both wildlife and people.
