The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund is innovative philanthropy proving small grants to boots-on-the-ground, get-your-hands-dirty, in-the-field species conservation projects for the world’s most threatened species.
Through innovative micro-financing, the MBZ Fund empowers conservationists to fight the extinction crisis instead of bureaucracy and red-tape. To date, the Fund has awarded over 2000 grants to a diverse range of species across the world.
The intent of the Covid-19 Relief Grants is to help ensure the operational viability of the organization until after the pandemic and associated economic crisis has passed.
The MBZ Fund wants to ensure that small, independent non-governmental organisations that are so crucial to the conservation of species in general survive the current crisis and will be able to continue their important work, after the immediate and significant effects of the pandemic have passed. It is anticipated that a single grant would be to cover at most a 3 month period, and give time to find other sources of funding.
