9 October 2019 is the next deadline to submit a proposal for the Recovery of Species on the Brink of Extinction funding opportunity.

In a partnership between National GeographicFondation Segré and IUCN SSC, the goal of this request for funding is to halt further biodiversity decline by implementing species conservation plans for species and groups of species.

All applications are required to include a letter of endorsement signed by the Chair, Regional or Thematic Leader of the relevant IUCN SSC Specialist Group. Proposals that include the active involvement of early career conservationists, and projects that support conservation leaders from the countries where the species or group of species occur are encouraged.

Typical proposal requests should be less than $30,000; however, applicants may request up to $50,000.
