We particularly encourage field studies and cross-disciplinary approaches to conservation, but we will consider a wide variety of projects. Those who wish to conduct a project outside of the United States must present evidence of strong local involvement.
• Visitor surveys;
• Husbandry projects;
• Training (except for foreign researchers);
• Travel (except to bring foreign researchers to meetings);
• Organizational overheard costs; and
• Salaries/stipends (except for locally hired support staff in non-industrialized countries).
Our planet is heating up. As humans, how much have we contributed to the problem? Learn more about how we got to where we are now, what we can do, and why conservation is so important.
