Funding may be used for research, technology, and conservation projects. Applicants must propose activities taking place in their country of residence.

Proposed projects should seek to better understand and/or provide solutions to the situations created or magnified by the pandemic, thereby helping to understand and address the challenges and changes of living in a COVID-19 world.
This fund invites research, conservation, and technology projects on the following two (2) topics; below are examples of the types of questions and projects that the Society would like to receive:
Community-based and inclusive conservation.
