Grants of up to $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International individuals and organizations to rescue animal species that cannot currently be saved in the wild. Applicants must submit a project outline prior to applying. Funding is intended for start-up projects, workshop attendance, and consultations, with a focus on ex situ amphibian conservation-related programs, and in partnership with appropriate field activities. Preference will be given to projects for species that have been assessed as in need of ex situ rescue or research work, either as a recommendation from a Conservation Needs assessment or a similar, national assessment process.
Amphibian Ark is now accepting funding applications for the following types of grants:
For start-up grants, as long as proposals detail the ex situ components that are already in place, up to 20% of the funds applied for can be used to support the acquisition of founder animals; however, priority will go to proposals in which 100% of the funds are directed to the ex situ facility.
