The Trevor Poyser Species Conservation Fund: call for applications
The Trevor Poyser Species Conservation Fund is now open for applications until the 1st December 2020. The fund supports research projects that lead to clear conservation benefits for a Globally Threatened species that occurs within the OSME region – the list of eligible species can be found here.
One grant will be made up to the value of £5000, and projects must meet all of the fund criteria. Applications will only be considered if they are submitted using the standard application form and are received by midnight (GMT) on the 1st December. The successful applicant will be informed by the 31st December 2020.
Last year the grant was awarded to Şafak Arslan of Doğa Derneği (the BirdLife partner in Turkey) for a project titled “Improving the conservation status of the biggest Egyptian Vulture Neophron percnopterus population in Turkey.” The Egyptian Vulture is categorised as Endangered according to the IUCN Red-list and this project will focus on the important population in the Beypazari region of Turkey.
We look forward to receiving your applications.
