Conservation Grant Opportunities

Brevard Zoo's Mission

"Wildlife Conservation Through Education and Participation"

Brevard Zoo is proud to offer grants to conservation organizations through its Quarters for Conservation and Wildlife Emergency Fund programs. Please review the below criteria carefully to determine which grant best suits your project. 



Projects considered for Q4C must be…

  • ongoing
  • conducted by a nonprofit conservation organization
  • seeking $2,000–$7,000 in funding
  • not part of a graduate student research project

Brevard Zoo seeks holistic projects that incorporate the community, education and wildlife conservation. We recognize that research is a critical step in conservation initiatives, however, applications for research projects must show that research results will produce conservation action.

The Quarters for Conservation program is currently under review and may experience some changes for the cycle of funding beginning in 2020. Please check back here for updates.



Projects considered for WEF must be…

  • addressing a severe, time-sensitive threat to wildlife
  • not addressing an ongoing threat to wildlife (please apply for a Q4C grant instead)
  • conducted by a nonprofit conservation organization

Funding is focused on saving wildlife impacted by natural or unforeseen man-made catastrophes such as earthquakes, flooding, fires, severe storms and unanticipated devastating habitat destruction. Research and awareness/outreach/education programs will not be considered for WEF. Support is intended for short-term emergency action. This program is made possible by the fundraising efforts of Zoo staff and volunteers.
