We are very pleased to announce the launch of ASA Conservation Grants, in partnership with Amphibian Ark Conservation Grants. These grants are only available to ASA partners, and are awarded in honour of Dr. George B. Rabb (1930-2017), an ardent supporter of amphibians and all those who care for them​. These grants support projects that reflect Dr. Rabb’s commitment to helping the world’s amphibians through evidence-based conservation interventions that address key threats and raise awareness.

In summary, we are offering two different grant opportunities:

ASA Start-up Grants

Initial funding is available to establish new in situamphibian conservation projects, and to help them attract larger and/or long-term funding. We will not fund projects that are already well-established and/or have significant funding, although we will consider in situ threat mitigation and communication aspects of projects with funding in place for complementary components. Grants of up to US$5,000 are currently available from ASA, and are organised in collaboration with Amphibian Ark Conservation Grantsin cases where ex situ actions are also important project components. If your project includes ex situ actions, please consider applying to Amphibian Ark for an additional grant of up to $5,000 to help cover these costs.

The deadline for Stage 1 Project Outlines is Monday 14thOctober 2019.

ASA Emergency Grants

Limited funding is available for ASA partners (and prospective partners) throughout the year for emergency situations – for example urgent threat mitigation and project development in cases demanding in situ action, such as the emergency rescue of wild populations facing imminent threat of extinction, sudden catastrophic events imperilling threatened species, etc. Please contact grants@amphibians.org at any time to discuss an emergency grant. Grants are organised in collaboration with Amphibian Ark Emergency Grantsin cases where ex situ actions are also important project components – contact grants@amphibianark.org for more information.

We look forward to receiving your applications!
