Future Conservationist Award

Please be aware that the CLP application cycle for 2019 is not open yet. We cannot guarantee that the same species and countries as last year will be eligible. In order to hear when the call for applications is out and about other funding opportunities, please follow us on FacebookTwitter, and subscribe to our newsletter. Thank you!


Future Conservationist Awards fund early career teams to conduct small-scale, practical conservation projects focused on globally threatened species and landscapes.  Teams of at least three people must exhibit leadership potential in biodiversity conservation and design a project that is feasible, builds team capacity and is methodologically sound.

As part of the award, winning teams are able to access expertise from within each of the three conservation partner organizations and via our Alumni Network that includes past award winners. Programme staff members are also available to advise on project implementation, including guidance required during the planning and team training stages.
