Chicago Zoological Society -- CBOT Endangered Species Fund

The Chicago Zoological Society administers conservation grants funded by the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT). Grants are for research projects that will: (i) help protect populations of threatened and endangered species; or (ii) protect a specific habitat of high biological value, or that is substantially threatened, using IUCN's definitions. The Fund supports small projects, usually up to US$5 thousand. Grants are open to chairs and officers in IUCN's SSC Specialist Group; chairs and officers in AZA/WAZA; and all interested researchers. The next application deadline is 15 July 2011.
