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. 

 

QUARTERS FOR CONSERVATION (Q4C)

Quarters for Conservation has been restructured! In order to create the greatest impact for wildlife, Brevard Zoo has created a new long-term wildlife conservation fund (not open to applications) and restructured the Quarters for Conservation program. Please see the Request for Proposals for more information on the restructuring.

Projects considered for Q4C must be…

  • conducted by a nonprofit conservation organization
  • seeking $14,000 in funding
  • not part of a graduate student research project

Brevard Zoo seeks holistic projects that incorporate the community, education and wildlife conservation. Please thoroughly read the Request for Proposals before submitting your application.

The annual deadline for applications is September 1. Those wishing to apply can do so here.

 

WILDLIFE EMERGENCY FUND (WEF)

Projects considered for WEF must be…

  • conducting short-term emergency action to address 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.

To apply, fill out this application and send it to Jody Palmer at jpalmer@brevardzoo.org. Click here for more information about WEF grants.
