Deadline:  January 27, 2023

The Sequoia Park Zoo and Conservation Advisory Committee are accepting proposals for our 12th annual Conservation Grant Program. Proposals should be submitted by individuals or organizations for projects that have a clear direct impact on conservation of wildlife and/or habitat. Appropriate projects include proposals for research, certain educational programs, and habitat management. All types of conservation projects will be reviewed, with special consideration given to the following: 

  • projects in line with the Zoo’s conservation goals and species represented at the Zoo; 
  • local research and conservation projects.

Support is limited to projects that can be completed within two years with a progress report due at the end of the first year. Some progress must be made within the first year, otherwise the Committee will request that the funds be returned. A post-project final report will be required upon completion of the funded project. Funds will be granted up to $3,000. 

Complete proposals must have a single cover sheet, two pages of text (maximum) and relevant supporting materials, as outlined in the Proposal Application Form.
