Funding brief: Through its institutional memberships, IZE raises funds to support Zoo and Aquarium Educators to attend the two yearly IZE conference. The Sponsored Delegates Grant is for Zoo and Aquarium Educators who would not otherwise have the means or support to attend the conference. The aim of the program is for IZE to help develop conservation education worldwide, to help achieve our mission of conserving global biodiversity through effective zoo and aquarium programs.
IZE conferences are a fantastic opportunity to learn about best practice in Zoo Education worldwide and to network with others working in conservation education from around the world. The grant is open to any Zoo and Aquarium Education professional worldwide, though preference may be given to those from developing countries. The grant is contestable with successful candidates chosen by the IZE Board. The grant covers conference registration, airfares, accommodation and some meals.
