Donor Name: The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund
Funding name: The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund
Funding brief: The Fund has been established to provide targeted grants to individual species conservation initiatives, recognize leaders in the field and elevate the importance of species in the broader conservation debate. Its focus is global and eligibility for grants will extend to all plant, animal and fungi species conservation efforts, without discrimination on the basis of region or selected species.
● There are three grant rounds per year, and generally applications received before the end of February will receive a reply at the end of April or early May.
● The next submission deadline will be the last day of June, (and applicants will receive a reply in September).
● The final round of grants in a given year usually has a deadline of the end of October, with applicants receiving a response in late December of the same year or early January of the following year.

Funding limit: Grants will be awarded based on their ability to meet criteria pre-determined by the Species Fund, and are for maximum of $25,000 for each project.
● Please note that this is a very competitive process and sadly the vast majority of applicants do not receive grants. The Fund has limited amounts of money to spend each year and receives far more applications for good projects than could possibly be supported. In 2016 only 9.7% of applicants received any kind of a grant, and over 1,600 were turned down.
● The Fund is happy to provide continuation support for a project which had previously been supported, which is now completed and for which the Fund has received all required reporting by the time of the respective submission deadline.
Project start date: Not Found
Project duration: Not Found
Eligible organization: Anyone directly involved in species conservation can apply to the Fund for a grant.
● The Fund will use the IUCN Redlist (www.iucnredlist.org ) as the primary guide to the conservation status of a given species, although documented variations for sub-species, distinct populations and sub-populations will be taken into account. For those species not assessed through the IUCN Redlist we welcome other methods of assessment and the submission of quantative data to confirm a species status. Generally the Fund gives priority to those species facing a hight threat of extinction (with an emphasis on Endangered and Critically Endangered species), as well as those which are listed as Data Deficient or unlisted but are suspected as highly threatened. Please ensure that the conservation status mentioned in the application is correct and cross-referenced to a website or publication. It might be of use to consult with the relevant IUCN/SSC Specialist Group if you are in doubt or would like some guidance.
