Fund for Wild Nature Invites Proposals

The Fund for Wild Nature ( http://fundwildnature.org/ ) provides money for campaigns to save and restore native species and wild ecosystems, including actions to defend wilderness and biological diversity. The fund supports advocacy, litigation, public policy work, development of citizen science, and similar endeavors. It does not support basic scientific research, private land acquisition, individual action or study, or conferences. The fund will only support media projects that have a clear strategic value and a concrete plan for dissemination of the final product. The fund supports biocentric goals that are premised on effective and intelligible strategies, and will give special attention to ecological issues not currently receiving sufficient public attention and funding. All proposals must be highly cost effective. The fund supports projects only in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and rarely supports proposals from organizations with annual budgets greater than $250,000. Visit the Fund for Wild Nature Web site for complete grant guidelines and application procedures. Deadlines are: April 28, 2006 and November 3, 2006.
