Applications for 2024 Team Awards are open!

The Conservation Leadership Programme provides Conservation Team Awards on annual basis to support the work of early-career conservationists.

We are particularly encouraging applications from marginalised groups including but not limited to indigenous peoples, women and gender nonconforming individuals, people living in the community where the project is based and those working on data-deficient species.

If you are the beginning of your conservation career (less than 5 years paid experience) – we want to support you! You don’t need to have an academic background, as long as you can demonstrate a commitment to and knowledge about your species.

For more opportunities such as this please follow us on FacebookInstagramWhatsApp, TwitterLinkedIn and Telegram

Applicants from eligible countries must have at least three team members and need to work with species listed as Data DeficientVulnerableEndangered or Critically Endangered on the global IUCN Red List.

About the CLP Team Awards

Each year, CLP calls for applications to support projects in low- and middle-income countries and some high-income islands in the Caribbean and Pacific. Funding is awarded to teams of early-career conservationists to conduct scientific research, encourage and promote pro-conservation attitudes and deliver tangible results to better conserve and manage the natural world.

There are three grant levels to allow teams to scale up their initial projects. Starting with a Future Conservationist Award, teams are supported to undertake small-scale research and awareness-raising projects. Through Follow-up and Leadership awards, teams can implement larger projects over a longer period of time and deliver practical solutions to conservation issues whilst learning to command more complex decision-making, communication and leadership skills.

Each year we receive a high number of applications for our Team Awards, making it a highly competitive process.

Professional Development, Mentoring and Networking

In addition to awarding project funding, CLP invites one member of each award-winning team to our annual international training course. Here, they learn about a range of conservation management and leadership topics as well as build a network with other early-career conservationists. Our training course helps awardees deliver their CLP projects and has also been credited for furthering participants’ career progression. It is a rewarding and life-changing experience!

As part of the award, winning teams are able to access expertise from within each of our three conservation partner organisations and via our global Alumni Network, which includes past award-winners. Programme staff members are also available to advise on project implementation, including guidance required during the planning and team training stages.

Deadline is 10 October 2023. APPLY HERE!
