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 receive applications for our small grants round from across Australia. The FNPW Project Committee, made up of representatives from our Board and Life Members of FNPW judged each and every application on it’s merits against the grant criteria to select just 7 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 projects were allocated funds in this years small grants round:
|Project Name||Conservation Focus||Lead Organisation||State|
