Erasmus Darwin Barlow Expeditions 2014
The intention is to contribute funds for short field expeditions (maximum 3 months) that carry out surveys to gather information to address a field conservation question.
The conservation question should focus on threatened or potentially threatened, poorly-known species or habitats currently receiving little or no conservation attention. The study should build on existing knowledge and must provide new information essential for conservation decision-making. For example, expeditions might gather new information on dominant threat processes or provide new insight into species’ distribution, abundance or ecology. Priority will be given to proposals that complement ZSL’s on-going conservation initiatives, and in particular those of the EDGE programme.
Efforts should be made to support capacity building for conservation in the host country – for example through training, providing equipment and technical literature, or supporting local research and conservationists / students.
