The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) provides competitive grants on an annual basis to teams of individuals early in their career to carry out conservation projects. Proposals must be focused on species and landscapes recognized globally as high priority for conservation. CLP is a partnership including three conservation organizations: BirdLife International, Fauna & Flora International, and WCS.
WCS's Graduate Scholarship Program provides access to graduate education opportunities for exceptional conservationists from Asia/Pacific, Africa, Latin America, and North American indigenous groups. Scholars are nominated by WCS global conservation staff.
The Wildlife Action Opportunities Fund provides competitive grants to conservation organizations that are focused on implementing priority actions and strategies identified in State Wildlife Action Plans.
