Funding opportunity by IUCN and partners - "Recover of Species on the Brink of Extinction"
10 April 2020 is the next deadline to submit a proposal for the Recovery of Species on the Brink of Extinction funding opportunity.
|Keywords||IUCN, IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC), endangered species, conservation|
The mandate of the IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC) is to “stimulate, promote and support conservation actions for halting biodiversity decline, preventing species’ extinctions, and restoring and conserving intact habitats and ecosystems, both on the ground and in the water”.
In partnership with the IUCN SSC and Fondation Segré, the goal of this request for funding is to halt further biodiversity decline by implementing conservation plans for species and groups of species. We will support priorities of IUCN SSC Species Conservation Plans as well as conservation actions that are endorsed by the relevant IUCN SSC Species Specialist Group. Currently, we are not supporting biodiversity assessments or conservation planning activities.
We require that all applications include a letter of endorsement signed by Chair, Regional or Thematic Leader of the relevant IUCN SSC Species Specialist Group. This endorsement letter should indicate that the proposal either:
- Explicitly address priorities defined in a published IUCN SSC action plan, which you can find here and here.
- Addresses a conservation action identified as a priority even though no plan for the particular species or group of species has yet been published
Please note that applications without a completed and signed endorsement letter will not be considered.
See website for details.
