Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers for research pertaining to young wild animals. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to a full grant application. Funding is intended to improve young animals' chances of growing to maturity. Priority will be given to studies benefitting the largest number of animals and with the greatest likelihood of delivering the expected answers or results.

At Wild Animal Initiative, the objective is to improve the well-being of as many animals as possible. Therefore, work on the most numerous wild animals, such as rodents, fish, and even invertebrates is prioritized. The same logic leads the Initiative to prioritize research into the early lives of wild animals. While only some animals will survive to experience adulthood, a much greater proportion experience what life is like as a juvenile member of their species.

Therefore, the Wild Animal Initiative is pleased to solicit proposals for research on the welfare, ecology, and everyday experiences of juvenile wild animals. Relevant projects might include studies that extend captive animal welfare assessment techniques to juvenile wild animals, or those that demonstrate how ecological concepts can relate to wild animal health and wellbeing. Additional example projects are provided in Supporting Documents. 

Funding is prioritized for direct research costs such as for supplies, materials, and travel. Funding for other expense areas (such as stipends, salaries, or durable goods) should be fully justified relative to the project goals.
