ASA Conservation Grant Opportunities

ASA Conservation Grants are only available to applicants from (or closely affiliated with) existing ASA partners. If your organization is not already in the ASA partnership, you must also submit an ASA Partnership Application Form (also available in Spanish) with your initial application.

These grants 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.

Start-up grants: Initial funding is available to establish new in situ amphibian 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 Grants in 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.

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 at any time to discuss an emergency grant. Grants are organised in collaboration with Amphibian Ark Emergency Grants in cases where ex situ actions are also important project components – contact for more information.
