Everything we do to protect endangered species is based on scientific evidence. Much of this vital information is gathered from our grant projects funded solely by your kind donations.
Your regular support allows us to gather evidence and target the most endangered species using cutting-edge techniques, before it's too late.
We support projects in the UK and all over the world, funding conservation organisations, scientific researchers and wildlife experts. With your help we are able to offer three main types of grants, examples of which can be viewed via the links below.

1. UK mammals
We’ve awarded over 100 UK mammal grants totalling £1.3 million. Recently we have supported a country-wide survey of bats, the reintroduction of beavers to Scotland and a project looking at the genetics of dormice.
2. Worldwide species
We’re saving endangered species around the world by encouraging innovative conservation. For example, we protected sea turtles in the Turks and Caicos Islands by funding groundbreaking research which changed fishing policies.
3. Internship projects
Our internships offer the brightest future UK-based conservationists the chance to work on invertebrate, amphibian and reptile, or mammal, conservation projects in the UK for up to 18 months.
