Three funding opportunities…

People’s Trust for Endangered Species – Conservation Insight Grants (UK/International)

Scientific researchers and conservationists in the UK and around the world are invited to apply for funding for work that is aimed at the preservation of endangered species.

Grants of up to £10,000 per annum for up to two years will be awarded to projects seeking to find the critical scientific evidence that will facilitate the conservation of one or more species or their habitat, or provide the answer to a key conservation question that will enable conservationists to undertake critical conservation action.

The funding is made available by the People’s Trust for Endangered Species through their Conservation Insight Grants programme which closes to applications at 11:59pm on 25 August 2024.

Funding for Marine Conservation Projects (UK)

Marine conservation charities and not for profit organisations (including schools) based and working in the UK can apply for grants of up to £2,500 towards projects and research that address the root causes of marine conservation threats and challenges in the UK, and increase the number of people taking action for marine conservation.

The funding, which is being made available through the Sea-Changers Main Grants programme, seeks to support creative and innovative approaches which have lasting benefits and outcomes.

Sea-Changers is particularly interested in grassroots projects which galvanise community action and in projects which increase the number of people taking action for marine conservation.

Small grants of up to £500 are also available. Applications to the Small Grants programme can be made at any time.

The next application deadline for the Main Grants programme is: 30 September 2024.

£3.25 Million Available for the Revival of Ancient Woodlands along the HS2 Route (England)

The Forestry Commission is inviting applications through the HS2 Woodland Fund.  The fund aims to support the creation and restoration of Ancient Woodland sites along the HS2 Phase One route.

With a budget of £4 million, the fund targets landowners within a 25-mile radius of the route from London to the West Midlands, offering financial support for both new woodland creation and the restoration of Plantations on Ancient Woodland Sites (PAWS).

Initially launched in November 2017 and administered by the Forestry Commission for HS2 Ltd, the Woodland Creation grants are now integrated into the England Woodland Creation Offer (EWCO), while PAWS restoration funding continues as a separate entity.

The next closing date for applications is 28 June 2024.
