AArk Seed Grant :Seed grant programAmphibian Ark is pleased to announce the ninth annual call for proposals for its Seed Grant program!
This $5,000 competitive grant is designed to fund small start-up rescue projects for species that cannot currently be saved in the wild. Successful proposals will reflect AArk values - please pay careful attention to the grant guidelines below for details on what types of projects are favored.
focusing on species whose threats cannot be mitigated in nature in time to prevent their extinction and who therefore require ex situ intervention to persist
working with species within their native range country
involving range-country biologists
adhering to recommended biosecurity standards for ex situ programs
linking ex situ programs to in situ conservation
involving partnerships to maximize the likelihood of the program’s long-term sustainability
