The People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) has opened its annual UK Mammals grant programme which supports the conservation of mammals in the UK.
Grants of between £10,000 and £20,000 (the average grant per project is £15,000) are available for scientific research, practical habitat management work, reintroduction and monitoring programmes and educational projects.
Scientific researchers and workers supporting the conservation of individual endangered species and their habitats can apply for funding under three broad themes.
- Monitoring mammals – better methods for estimating distribution and abundance, more sensitive methods for assessing population change.
- Habitats for mammals – assessing habitat suitability and connectivity, improving and restoring habitats, habitat management, habitat fragmentation, modification and loss.
- Human impacts and mitigation – climate change, habitat fragmentation, modification and loss, impact of introduced mammals and diseases, roads and other infrastructure, toxic chemicals and pollution.
