Applications for ZSL’s 2012 Erasmus Darwin Barlow Expedition grants open!
The intention is to contribute funds for short field expeditions (maximum 3 months) that carry out surveys to gather information to address a field conservation question.
The conservation question should focus on threatened or potentially threatened poorly-known species or habitats currently receiving little or no conservation attention. With so many priority EDGE species being poorly known this is a great opportunity to contribute to their conservation.
The study should build on existing knowledge and must provide new information essential for conservation decision-making. For example, expeditions might gather new information on dominant threat processes or provide new insight into species’ distribution, abundance or ecology. Priority will be given to proposals that complement ZSL’s on-going conservation initiatives such as EDGE.
