Alongside Wildlife Foundation seed grant program 2022 support focus on:
Natural History: despite increasing calls to recognize and appreciate natural history, this type of research is rarely prioritized; they fund projects that generate basic but vital information about the species alongside us.
Science Communication: scientists and science communicators are facing pressure to reach out and engage with new audiences.However,their grant program is designed to support this work; we focus on projects that facilitate and encourage science communication projects that aim to reduce human/wildlife conflict. Projects must include novel and creative collaborations between scientists and artists.
Living Alongside Wildlife: As our landscapes become increasingly human-dominated, it is essential to generate and implement co-existence strategies that allow for wildlife to persist alongside us. We fund projects that evaluate or implement science-based strategies to reduce human/wildlife conflict.
