    Default New bird conservation fund welcomes applications


    Do you know of any bird conservation projects which could do with a little financial help to get them going?

    A new conservation funding initiative, the Sound Approach Bird Fund, offers grants of up to GBP£10,000 (c. US$15,800 equivalent) to bird conservation projects around the world.

    We're looking for projects that will have a significant conservation benefit, making a real impact on the survival of globally or nationally threatened species or globally important sites. We're particularly looking for small, grassroots groups, rather than large national or international organisations, and projects which are are difficult to raise funds for.

    There are no deadlines; applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. For further details, guidelines for applicants including eligibility criteria, and a downloadable application form, please either:
    - visit: or
    - email:

    Please distribute this email widely: the more quality applications, the better!

    That's pretty impressive. I wonder what the total funding pot is?
