2015/013: Funding Opportunities for Migratory Species Conservation

The Secretariat of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) is pleased to inform you of two funding opportunities.

The first one is within the SOS – Save Our Species Rapid Action Grants that support projects aimed at addressing immediate threats that require targeted specific action. No deadline is indicated for applying for this SOS grant. Instructions for applicants can be found here.

The second funding opportunity is within the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund to support the protection of endangered species. The deadline for applying for this grant is 30 June 2015. Instructions for applicants can be found here.

These grants promote objectives that are consistent with those of the Convention and its specialized agreements and may thus provide a source of funding to assist the CMS Family with the implementation of conservation activities on the ground.

The Secretariat encourages Parties to the Convention and partner organizations to propose projects that contribute to the implementation of any plans, actions or initiatives developed under CMS and its instruments, and will strive to support these proposals with letters of endorsement.

Anyone who is eligible and interested in submitting a project proposal to the SOS and/or the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund that supports CMS goals is asked to please contact:
