Grants for Organisations:
Strategic Partnership Grant (INR 35 lakhs): This flagship grant will primarily reach out to mid to large sized field work oriented organisations to create a two-way partnership for thecommon cause of conservation. This grant is directed towards the running costs of on-ground projects. The grant should enable the creation of a sustainable and replicable conservation model to address some of the key conservation issues in India.
Lesser-known Habitats Grant (INR 30 lakhs): This first of its kind initiative aims to secure and regenerate the overlooked and unaddressed habitats of the country that are in urgent need of conservation attention. India is home to an array of lesser-known habitats like grasslands, deserts, mangroves, marine ecosystems and numerous more. Some lesser-known habitats also serve as important corridors between key wildlife landscapes and as havens for dispersal populations. Through the lesser-known habitats grant, they hope to support organisations working to securethese vital habitats and bring them into the limelight.
Lesser-known Species Grant (INR 25 lakhs): Traditionally, a great deal of attention has been given to the “charismatic” species of the country such as tigers, lions, leopards, elephants and rhinos. While this is necessary, lesser-known species that are equally endangered and ecologically important, rarely come into the spotlight and are seldom afforded the same level of conservation attention. This unique grant aims to support conservationists and organisations working to secure a future for lesser-known endangered species of fauna and flora.
Grants for Individuals:
Conservation Hero Grant (INR 15 lakhs): Across the country there are grassroots conservationists working dedicatedly, with little to no support, to protect threatened biodiversity. The work they do in their individual capacity has a meaningful impact on conservation in the country, but unfortunately, largely goes unrecognised. This grant aims to champion the work these conservation heroes and provide them a platform to expand their activities and garner further support for their activities.
