The Alongside Wildlife Foundation grant program is designed to support projects that are important yet typically overlooked by most funding agencies and organizations. There have been increasing calls to recognize and appreciate natural history but the necessary research is rarely prioritized; now The Alongside Wildlife Foundation can help fund projects that generate this basic but vital information about the species alongside us. Are you working on implementing science-based strategies that allow people to share landscapes with wildlife? Consider applying. Finally, many scientists and science communicators are facing pressure to reach out and engage with new audiences, but there are few funding opportunities to facilitate and encourage necessary collaborations. Now The Alongside Wildlife Foundation can help.
We support projects that relate to either 1) collecting data (including basic natural history information) that can inform plans that allow people to live alongside wildlife, 2) communicating science to communities with the goal of reducing human/wildlife conflict, and/or 3) evaluating and/or implementing science-based strategies for living alongside wildlife populations.
