Recovering Species on the Edge of Extinction

We seek proposals from around the world that will implement IUCN SSC Species Action Plans as well as conservation actions that are endorsed by the relevant IUCN SSC Species Specialist Group.

Other requests for proposals including reducing marine plastic and species recovery may be found on their website –

The National Geographic Society accepts applications throughout the year. However, the Committee meets only four times a year (January, April, July, October) and your application must be received at least 4 months prior to be considered in a meeting. Thus, we recommend submitting your application at least 6-8 months before your fieldwork is planned
