Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $2,500 to USA and territories, Canada, and International organizations and graduate students for wildlife conservation projects. Funding is intended to support new and early-stage projects in the areas of science communication, natural history, and living alongside wildlife. Projects should focus on terrestrial and shoreline-associated animals (including invertebrates).

In 2018 The Alongside Wildlife Foundation began a seed-grant program to support the kinds of important wildlife projects that are typically overlooked by most major organizations. In just a few years they have awarded nearly $50,000 to wildlife conservation projects from Arkansas to Indonesia. 

Projects will focus on the following areas:

  • Science Communication: Scientists and science communicators are facing pressure to reach out and engage with new audiences. The grant program is designed to support this work; the Foundation focuses on projects that facilitate and encourage science communication projects that aim to reduce human/wildlife conflict. Projects must include novel and creative collaborations between scientists and artists.
  • Living Alongside Wildlife: As our landscapes become increasingly human-dominated, it is essential to generate and implement co-existence strategies that allow for wildlife to persist alongside us. The Foundation funds projects that evaluate or implement science-based strategies to reduce human/wildlife conflict.

Natural History: Despite increasing calls to recognize and appreciate natural history, this type of research is rarely prioritized. The Foundation funds projects that generate basic but vital information about the species alongside us.

This is a seed grant program, meaning that the Foundation prioritizes projects that have not yet started or are within their first year.
