                                   Primary Function of Grant



Environmental education projects that enhance the public's awareness, knowledge, and skills to help
people make informed decisions that affect environmental quality are the primary goals of the grants.




Funds can be used for a wide variety of projects, including: ongoing museum work, research and other
behind-the-scenes activities, planning, new programs, purchase of equipment or services, and activities
that will support the efforts of museums to upgrade and integrate new technologies. grants fund:
Engaging Communities (Education, Exhibitions, and Interpretation), Building Institutional Capacity
(Management, Policy, and Training) ,Collections Stewardship (Management of Collections)




Strategic Impact—Proposals should address key needs and challenges that face libraries and museums.
They should expand the boundaries within which libraries and museums operate, show the potential for
far-reaching impact, and influence practice throughout the museum and/or library communities.
Innovation—Proposals should demonstrate a thorough understanding of current practice and knowledge
about the project area, and show how the project will advance the state of the art of museum and library
service.
Collaboration—While partners are not required in all NLG categories, the Institute has found that involving
carefully chosen partners with complementary competencies and resources can create powerful
synergies that extend project impact. Proposals should show understanding of the challenges of
collaboration and propose means for addressing them.


Grants are designed to help museums assess their strengths and weaknesses, and plan for the
future. The program provides technical assistance for four kinds of assessments: (1) collections
management; (2) governance; (3) institutional; and (4) public dimension.



The goals of the grants are to help museums identify conservation needs and priorities, and
perform activities to ensure the safekeeping of their collections.
Grants may also help museums develop and implement a logical, institution-wide approach to
caring for their living and material collections.
Grants are also available for many types of conservation activities, including surveys (general,
detailed condition, or environmental); training; treatment; and environmental improvements.




Grants support innovative, potentially transformative, complex research and education projects
that require large-scale, long-term awards.


Grants support research that harnesses and integrates knowledge across multiple disciplines to
create a common groundwork of conceptualization, experimentation and explanation that anchor
new lines of thinking and inquiry towards a deeper understanding of learning; to advance the
frontiers of all the sciences of learning through integrated research; to connect the research to
specific scientific, technological, educational, and workforce challenges; to enable research
communities to capitalize on new opportunities and discoveries; and to respond to new

ISE projects provide rich and stimulating contexts and experiences for individuals of all ages,
interests, and backgrounds to increase their appreciation for, and understanding of, science,
technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in out-of-school settings. Projects support
projects that communicate to public audiences the process and results of current research that
is being supported by any NSF directorate through informal science education activities, such as
media presentations, exhibits, or youth-based activities.
Supporting innovative, international research and education collaborations. The
program aims to support partnerships that will strengthen the capacity of
institutions, multi-institutional consortia, and networks to engage in and benefit
from international research and education collaborations.



To support work related to coastal ocean research priorities as identified by NOAA's Center for
Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research Coastal Ocean Program.

To bring together citizen groups, public and nonprofit organizations, industry, corporations and
businesses, students, landowners, local government, and state and Federal agencies to restore
fishery habitat around the coastal U.S.


The African Elephant Conservation Act (1988) provides for the establishment of an African
Elephant Conservation Fund to provide support for projects that will enhance sustainable
conservation programs to ensure effective, long-term conservation of African elephants
throughout its range.




The Asian Elephant Conservation Act (1997) provides for the establishment of an Asian
Elephant Conservation Fund to provide support for projects that will enhance sustainable
conservation programs to ensure effective, long-term conservation of Asian elephants
throughout its range.
The U.S. Government enacted the Great Ape Conservation Act (2000) in response to the
decline of ape populations in Africa and Asia. The Act provides for the conservation and
protection of apes by supporting conservation programs of countries within the range of apes,
and the projects of persons with demonstrated expertise in the conservation of apes.




The Wildlife Without Borders Latin America and the Caribbean Program (WWB-LAC) funds
projects designed to strengthen the ability of Latin American and Caribbean institutions to
manage and conserve species, habitats, and ecological processes for the benefit of the people
of the Americas and the world. Of particular interest are projects that build the human capacity
to effectively conserve and manage natural protected areas in Latin America and the Caribbean.




The Marine Turtle Conservation Fund is soliciting proposals for the conservation of marine
turtles throughout their range outside of the United States. The U.S. Government enacted the
Marine Turtle Conservation Fund of 2004 in response to the decline of many marine turtle
populations worldwide and the serious threats to the long therm survival of marine turtle
populations. The primary purpose of the Act is to provide financial support for projects that
conserve nesting populations and habitat and address other threats to the survival of marine
turtles in foreign countries.


The USFWS and the Mexican Ministry of Environmental and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT)
are soliciting proposals under the Wildlife Without Borders Program for projects that address
Mexico's capacity building for biodiversity conservation. The goal of this program is to build
human and institutional capacity for biodiversity conservation and management in Mexico
through training associated with mexican nature reserves. Of interst are projects that provide
training in biodiversity conservation or natural resource management associated with federal,
state, or local nature reserves, or areas in the process of acquiring protection status, as well as
other priority biodiversity areas designated by the Government of Mexico.


The Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Fund is soliciting proposals for the conservation of
rhinoceros and/or tigers throughout their ranges. The Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Act
was passed in 1994 to provide financial resources for the conservation programs of nations
whose activities directly or indirectly affect rhinoceros and tiger populations.

Supporting amphibian conservation within the AZA community, particularly
projects that address ATAG Regional Collection Plan Conservation or Education
Goals.




ASAG offers small grants to bird keepers and working bird husbandry
supervisors. These grants support travel to ASAG sponsored workshops for the
purpose of presenting papers on advancements in the care and reproduction of
avian species in zoos and/or field conservation projects in which the applicant
has been involved in a lead role. It is envisioned that grant recipients will become
more familiar with ASAG purpose and goals, begin to establish a network of
colleagues and mentors, and become active participating members of the group.




To support zoo and aquarium staff who are engaged in scientific efforts related
to bat management, in situ biological conservation, conservation education,
veterinary health, nutrition, zoological research and reproduction, especially
those from endangered or threatened species.

In general, the CBOT Committee wishes to have grant funds applied to the
following types of actions: Research and conservation projects focused on
animal species in IUCN categories of Vulnerable, Threatened, Endangered and
Critically Endangered Species (IUCN Red List Status). We will consider "data
deficient" species, and those in poorly monitored taxi (such as amphibians, fish
and invertebrates) or projects focused on habitats of high biological value. We
now have a focus on high-biodiversity developing countries. Higher priority will be
given to projects under the leadership of professionals in developing countries
(i.e. non-OECD countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America) that include a local
education and conservation component.
To provide financial support to conservation and research projects involving
animals and their habitat, and/or educational or cultural activities which involve or
impact animals and their habitat. Ideal projects will have clear, long-term
conservation implications, positively impact local people and create opportunities
for capacity building in country.




The Scott Neotropical Fund supports the work of neotropical residents in their
countries through direct project support, training opportunities, and/or technical
assistance that will continue to benefit the local people, wildlife and habitats of
the neotropics into the future.
The Scott Neotropical Fund supports the work of neotropical residents in their
countries through direct project support, training opportunities, and/or technical
assistance that will continue to benefit the local people, wildlife and habitats of
the neotropics into the future.




Supporting in situ projects that focus on protecting and studying endangered and
threatened animals and their habitats. Special focus on tropical, marine, African,
and Asian animals and ecosystems.




The Fresno Chaffee Zoo Wildlife Conservation Fund was established in 2006 to
promote understanding and enjoyment of rare, threatened and endangered
animals and their habitats and to support zoological research that will directly
benefit captive animal management.


Support in situ and ex situ wildlife conservation, captive animal management,
and educational programs.
Scientific research in behavior, nutrition, reproduction, physiology, conservation
or veterinary medicine to be conducted at the Lincoln Park Zoological Garden.




To support original conservation research projects, which have a clear and direct
application to the Memphis Zoo's mission of preserving wildlife.
Support wildlife conservation and research efforts directly benefiting wildlife in
their native ranges worldwide.



To support field conservation programs in the Pacific Northwest and abroad.
Funded projects must directly contribute to the survival of populations of free-
living animal species and the ecosystems in which they are found.
To support the preservation of wildlife and wild habitat. A wide variety of projects
will be considered, but field studies and cross-disciplinary approaches to
conservation are especially encouraged.

To support AZA Conservation Committee (SSP, TAG, CAP, SAG) projects
identified as priorities in AZA-endorsed Action Plans; AZA Conservation
Committees (other requests); outside agencies (USFWS, state wildlife agencies,
etc.); and individual researchers.
Projects designed to enhance biodiversity and maintain ecosystems receive
highest funding priority; proposals for single species or initial surveys are not
appropriate.
The Fund’s goal is to support projects that lead directly to conservation of
jaguars and their habitat by incorporating conservation, education, and research
components, along with strong connections to communities living with jaguars.



The Grant will fund projects that assist in habitat restoration, wildlife conservation
and management, community-based conservation, including eco-tourism,

                         Primary Function of Grant


To fund clinically oriented and/or conservation research projects involving either
reptiles and/or amphibians. Proposals will be evaluated based on clinical
significance, conservation relevance, feasibility of proposal, and research
methodology.




To provide guidance on improving institution efficiency, enhancing the
performance of institutional governing authority and/or better protecting
institutional collections. The assessments provide an increased level of
understanding of museum standards and best practices by both governing
authority members and staff. After an institution evaluates its current level of
performance, peer reviewers provide an outside opinion, giving the institution
prioritized recommendations and strategies for implementing improvements.


To encourage research conducted by animal keepers at zoos and aquariums.




Supporting conservation research or related projects, including conservation
education, related to primates.




To support the protection and restoration of the environment of the Pacific
Northwest. Priority areas include energy and climate change; forests and land
ecosystems; growth management and transportation; public outreach, education,
and capacity building; rivers, wetlands, and estuaries.



To support nutritional studies of zoo or wild carnivorous species. Projects,
including field studies, that demonstrate multi-disciplinary links between nutrition
and other scientific disciplines (i.e. reproduction, immune function, behavior and
health), receive highest funding priority. Nutrition education programs,
development/application of new analytical techniques, and diet evaluation and
review for improved feeding management are also appropriate. Funded by Central
Nebraska Packing, Inc. (“Nebraska Brand”).
Grant funds community-level projects focusing on local experiences with climate
change and its impacts. These could involve field research, interviews with
community members, workshops, photo projects, film projects etc.




The prevention of environmental deterioration and the protection of natural
resources. The Foundation's priorities in the environmental field include land, river
and watershed protection and management for purposes of long term habitat and
ecosystem preservation and restoration and changing the relationship between
people and the natural environment in order to promote a sustainable and just
balance between meeting present human needs and conserving natural systems
for future generations.



With its focus primarily in the state of California, along the West Coast of North
America, and in the Pacific Ocean, the goals of the Conservation Program are
threefold: first, to protect globally outstanding habitats in areas of natural
significance and biological diversity through the development of site-based
programs; second, to address important factors of environmental degradation
found in inappropriate and unsustainable use of land, water, energy and marine
resources; and third, to elevate the role of natural and social science in the
management of key resources and in the arena of conservation policy.

Provides tuition, internship and loan repayment support for graduate students
focusing on environmental studies at six universities. In the future, the Foundation
also plans to support training for mid-career conservation leaders. The Foundation
may also support education and training for public, private and nonprofit
