supports efforts in conservation and environmental stewardship, with the aim of enabling those involved in animal biology, research, and conservation to do their best work easily and quickly.
To advance this mission, Wildlife Acoustics awards grants of up to $5,000 to support bioacoustics research efforts on chiropteran, avian, terrestrial, amphibious, and marine wildlife. To be eligible for a grant, projects must make significant use of bioacoustics for data collection and/or analysis, advance scientific knowledge, and contribute to long-term conservation. In addition, the grant award must have a significant impact on the success of the project.
To be eligible, applicants must be a biologist, researcher, conservationist, or student who works for a tax exempt nonprofit organization, educational institution, or government agency. Non-U.S. organizations are eligible to apply.
