CONSERVATION

We protect unique, lesser-known species and the worlds they live in

Featured Grantee

Sharks! In Wales?!

Heard of angelsharks? Say no and you wouldn’t be alone. These rarely seen “flat sharks” have now been sighted off the coast of Wales. Scientists from Project SIARC (Sharks Inspiring Action and Research with Communities) are calling on local fishers, school kids and citizen scientists to help them learn more about this elusive species.

Pledged to preserve EDGE species

Our Grantees

We fund projects with carefully handpicked partners. These groups dedicate themselves to preserving endangered species and their habitats.

updated 2022/05

International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) SSC

We are backing the IUCN’s Species Survival Commission. We want to bolster its work to learn more about evolutionarily distinct species and their lineages.

Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC)

Numbats are one of Australia’s most threatened marsupials and they’re suckers for termites! Our grant will help AWC reintroduce numbats to predator-free sanctuaries.

EDGE of Existence programme

EDGE began life in 2007 as the Zoological Society of London’s EDGE of Existence programme. With our support, the program fights to conserve EDGE species.

Project SIARC (Sharks Inspiring Action and Research with Communities)

We’re behind Project SIARC, which engage with local people and fishers to improve its own - and everyone else’s - understanding of angelsharks and other super-rare marine species.

GERP (Groupe d’Étude et de Recherche sur les Primates)

Protecting aye-ayes means saving the Madagascan rainforests that these bony-fingered lemurs call home. GERP scientists work with local communities to protect the aye-aye’s habitat.

Nature Conservation Foundation (NCF)

The Western Ghats is a mega-hotspot for biodiversity - full of birds and amphibians that don’t live anywhere else on earth. We're in it for the long haul with NCF, backing its conservation efforts across the region.

About Our Grants

Our work is informed by our values of diversity, equality and inclusion. So, before we decide to support any organization, we ask ourselves: Can we forge a relationship based on trust? Are we truly prioritizing local needs and being led by local experts?

Our Policy - TBD REMOVE

Driving change

Saving EDGE species means doing more than checking out purple frogs in the Western Ghats. To protect biodiversity, we must be in the room when policy decisions are made. That means being part of:

COP15

The biodiversity Conference of Parties (not the climate COP) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) it governs.

UK Parliamentary Events and environmental consultations

updated 2022/05

IUCN Species Survival Commission Phylogenetic Diversity Task Force

Which contributes to COP15 and CBD.
