The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB): Inviting applications for ‘the Birdfair/RSPB Research Fund for Endangered Birds’ to help the world’s rarest birds.

Funding brief: RSPB awards small grants to help the world’s rarest birds. Around 600 bird species are listed as globally Endangered or Critically Endangered. These are the rarest and most threatened species on the planet. Yet some of them are so poorly known that it is difficult to know what to do to help them. Some of them have not even been seen for many years. This fund allows researchers working in their own countries to undertake basic research on these species to generate the knowledge we need to design conservation actions.

● To support local ornithologists to undertake research on the world’s most threatened birds.
● To publicize their findings.
● To raise the capacity of researchers in developing countries.
