Latest Projects

This year we received just over 201 applications for our Conservation Team Awards. After a rigorous three-stage selection process, our Awards Selection Committee met in March 2023 and agreed on the final list of award-winners.

Our 2023 Team Awards, worth a total of $280k, have been granted to 17 exceptional teams of conservationists who are carrying out priority projects to protect threatened species across the world.

The award-winning projects will focus on saving some of the world’s most threatened fauna and flora across 12 different countries in Latin America & the Caribbean, Asia & the Pacific, Africa and Eurasia.

More details about the award winning projects can be found below by following the links to each individual project page or reading our latest news.

Funding these projects would not have been possible without the generous support of Arcadia – a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin and  the March Conservation Fund.

Conservation Follow-Up Awards – continuation awards worth $25,000 for projects up to two years in length:

Future Conservationist Awards – entry-level awards worth $15,000 for projects between three and 12 months in length:

One member from each award-winning team will be invited to attend the CLP Conservation Leadership & Management workshop. This course is being planned as a hybrid course.

As in previous years, this course offers training in essential topics for professional conservationists, enabling them to build on the knowledge and skills that will underpin their future careers as conservation leaders. Moreover, by bringing participants together from around the world, the workshop provides an opportunity to form valuable connections with other early-career conservationists. Winning a CLP award also gives each team access to the CLP alumni network, which offers more opportunities for funding, training and learning exchanges.
