ASAP Species Conservation Grants – now closed


ASAP species are some of the most at risk of extinction on the planet. The ASAP Species Conservation Grants are designed to support ASAP Partners in their efforts to conserve ASAP species and their habitats. To be considered for an ASAP Species Conservation Grant, an organisation must be an existing ASAP Partner.

The priority for ASAP Species Conservation Grants are:

  • projects within Southeast Asia, but priority conservation actions for ASAP species outside this region will be considered where there is strong justification
  • projects submitted by national organisations and those where the Project Lead is from the country in which the conservation actions take place
  • species that are receiving less conservation attention globally than is average for ASAP species, and to applications making a clear case that the species in question is severely under-supported globally

The grant programme will support a range of conservation activities for ASAP species including, but not limited to:

  • species and habitat protection
  • anti-poaching
  • conflict mitigation and management

You must provide clear justification as to how these activities will support ASAP species conservation and deliver on conservation outcomes. It is expected that grants will average USD8,000, however a maximum grant of USD15,000 may be awarded in exceptional circumstances.


Existing Partners are now invited to submit pre-proposals to the ASAP Species Conservation Grants programme and if successful will be invited to develop a full application.

Pre-proposal deadline: 15th August 2020  30th August 2020
