SavingSpecies: Inviting applications to help local conservation groups purchase land for conservation and habitat restoration, and may consider projects for restoration of habitat on land that is within an existing protected area.

Donor Name: SavingSpecies
Funding name:  No specific fund name

Funding brief:  SavingSpecies helps local conservation groups purchase land for conservation and habitat restoration, and may consider projects for restoration of habitat on land that is within an existing protected area. They maximize our effectiveness by providing grants for the purchase and restoration of land that connects existing habitat fragments, or that prevents isolation of habitat that would otherwise continue due to habitat loss.

As their existing projects demonstrate, their strategy is to fund relatively small land purchases — at most a few hundred hectares — with the aim to create several thousand hectares of continuous habitat. By restoring habitat connections these purchases improve the survival of dozens of endangered species. This approach increases the impact of our limited conservation funds. Their completed projects have involved collaborations and land purchases that, in some cases, were spread out over several years.

Criteria: An ideal project will meet some or all of the following criteria:
Preserves or restores an area of high biodiversity and/or habitat for critically endangered species
Administered by local or host-country NGO and staff
Includes proactive measures to reclaim and restore degraded land or preserve existing habitat
Fosters connectivity between forests and other habitats and existing protected areas
Involves local people to ensure accrual of benefits to them.
