FNPW Community Conservation Grants - 2019 Grantees

Blog Post - FNPW Community Conservation Grants - 2019 Grantees

FNPW's Community Conservation Grants program contributes to the protection of Australia's native species, habitats, landscapes and cultural heritage by providing funding for field projects and education programs that have a direct nature conservation outcome.

In December & January we received 70 applications for our small grants round from across Australia. Projects were from a wide variety of organisations and individuals and covered all of our main priority areas of threatened species conservation, cultural heritage, parks for people and land and water conservation.

Our Project Committee, made up of representatives from our Board and Life Members of the Foundation judged each and every application on it’s merits against the grant criteria to select just 10 projects for funding.

The Projects Committee would like to thank all those who put together applications for this years grant round. We know that many of the organisations that submit projects for funding are run by small but passionate groups of volunteers and that much time and effort goes into securing funds for their important projects.

The following ten projects were allocated funds in this years small grants round:
