Wildlife Without Borders
The Organization’s Latin America and the Caribbean program supports capacity building, information exchange, and species and habitat conservation projects that influence and empower local people to balance the needs of communities with the conservation and sustainable use of wildlife resources. Grantmaking is targeted toward projects that are designed to strengthen the ability of Latin American and Caribbean institutions to manage and conserve species, habitats, and ecological processes for the benefit of all. Of particular interest are projects that build the human and institutional capacity to effectively conserve and manage natural protected areas in Latin America and the Caribbean. Funding is earmarked for conservation training programs that reach the priority audiences associated with protected areas. Capacity building grants seek to advance the transition of protected areas from legally established, but under-implemented, “paper parks” to effectively managed landscapes that benefit regional species. Projects should take place in Latin America or the Caribbean. The program has two deadlines annually, October 15 and April 15.
