Please note: This grant is currently not available. 

The Brevard Zoo Wildlife Emergency Fund (WEF) is a small grant program that provides emergency funding to address severe, specific and time-sensitive threats to wildlife. Emergency funding is focused on saving wildlife impacted by unforeseen natural or man-made catastrophes. Research and awareness/outreach/education programs will not be considered for WEF. Support is intended for short-term emergency action.

Brevard Zoo only supports established non-profit conservation and research organizations. WEF provides support up to $2,500 and funding can be used for operational support during times of crisis.

The Brevard Zoo WEF is made possible by the fundraising efforts of Brevard Zoo staff and volunteers. The ability to fulfill emergency requests is dependent upon the availability of these variable funds. As a result, only a limited number of requests are supported annually.
