New funding to safeguard threatened ungulates via the Fondation Segré Conservation Action Fund
The Fondation Segré Conservation Action Fund, in collaboration with IUCN Save Our Species, is thrilled to announce the opening of the fourth calls for proposals under the initiative. The application deadline is set for Thursday, April 4, 2024, at 14:00 (2 pm) Central European Summer Time - CEST.
Ungulates, often referred to as "nature's architects," play a crucial role in preserving the health and resilience of ecosystems. Their impact on seed dispersal and germination, coupled with being vital prey species, supports the distribution and abundance of various animal species. Despite their significance, threats such as poaching, habitat loss, and diseases jeopardize the survival of many ungulate species.
This year's calls for proposals focuses specifically on globally threatened ungulates identified by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™. The goal is to safeguard their habitats, mitigate threats, and enhance the well-being of both the species and the communities sharing their ecosystems.
The Fondation Segré Conservation Action Fund is offering two types of grants: Conservation Action Grants and Research Support Grants.
This five-year initiative, supported by Fondation Segré through IUCN Save Our Species, is committed to global conservation efforts. Operating until 2026, the fund targets threatened species and their habitats in Asia, the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, and the Middle East. The initiative backs conservation projects and supports young and early researchers focusing on priority species listed as threatened on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
Fondation Segré remains dedicated to preserving our planet's biodiversity by actively conserving threatened species, protecting their habitats, and restoring degraded ecosystems.
