Riverbanks Zoo & Garden: Inviting applications for ‘Satch Krantz Conservation Support Fund’ to provide important assistance to conservation biologists involved in an array of wildlife conservation projects both in the US and abroad.

Funding brief: In 1996 the Riverbanks Society established the Riverbanks Conservation Support Fund in order to provide important assistance to conservation biologists involved in an array of wildlife conservation projects both in the US and abroad.

Over the past two decades, Riverbanks’ conservation fund has provided grants for nearly 200 projects in 36 countries around the globe. In June 2017 the fund was renamed in honor of retiring president & CEO Satch Krantz for his 44 years of service to Riverbanks and his passion for saving species.

It is the mission of the Riverbanks Zoological Park and Botanical Garden to foster an appreciation and concern for all living things. Riverbanks supports this mission in many ways including conserving biodiversity through careful utilization of available resources. The Satch Krantz Conservation Fund, formerly Riverbanks Conservation Support Fund, was created to provide financial assistance for conservation-oriented projects/programs that promote preservation of the Earth’s biodiversity. Riverbanks encourages the submission of projects that have the potential for broad-based conservation and/or management impact.

Riverbanks encourages its staff to be active participants in conservation initiatives.  Therefore, added weight will be given to projects in which Riverbanks staff members participate as PIs or collaborators and to projects that are willing to accept the participation of Riverbanks Field Conservation Associates*. Likewise, additional weight will be given to projects that are focused on applied conservation/animal management.
