Projects eligible for funding must assist in the management or enhancement of biodiversity in the Falkland Islands. Priority will be given to initiatives which include environmental research, on-ground action, and educational activities addressing the following key themes: Invasive Species and Bio-security; Vulnerable Species and Habitats; Priority Protected and Designated Sites.
Applicants are encouraged to discuss their projects with the Environmental Officer beforehand. The deadline for applications is Friday 3 August 2018.
