2016/029: Funding Opportunity for Nature Conservation

The Secretariat of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) is pleased to inform you of a new funding opportunity within the Whitley Fund for Nature. The deadline for applying for the Whitley Awards 2017 is 31 October 2016. Instructions for applicants can be found here.

This grant promotes 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 an application to the Whitley Awards 2017 that supports CMS goals is kindly asked to contact:  Laura Cerasi, Associate Partnerships and Fundraising Officer, UNEP/CMS Secretariat, E-mail: laura.cerasi@cms.int
