Stiftung Artenschutz

Financial support, technical consultancy and administrative assistance to perform conservation measures for critically endangered species or subspecies

Principal Office: Germany

The Stiftung Artenschutz (“Species Conservation Foundation”) is a joint initiative of respected zoos and nature conservation organizations.

The foundation aims to preserve animal species (and their natural environment) which, although under severe threat of global extinction, do not have a strong enough lobby for their conservation.

Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources

Financial support, technical consultancy and administrative assistance. Stiftung Artenschutz promotes conservation projects for highly endangered species (preferably, in the IUCN category critically endangered).

The projects funded should serve the objectives of in-situ conservation. However, funding may also include ex-situ conservation measures, if they are sensible and essential in order to maintain threaten species or populations.

Projects in ‘first-world countries’ such as Europe, North America or Australia, have less priority.

APPLICATION: Stiftung Artenschutz published annual calls for proposals in two categories, the “Amphibian Conservation Fund” and a “Small Grants Program” for threatened species of the categories Critically EndangeredEndangered und Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.
