Call for Applications: 2015 Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) Conservation Team Awards are now open

CLP aims to advance biodiversity conservation globally by building the leadership capabilities of early-career conservation professionals working in high-priority places with limited capacity to address conservation issues. This partnership initiative, including BirdLife International, Fauna & Flora International and the Wildlife Conservation Society, has been helping young conservationists across the world to achieve their goals for 30 years. The programme works toward its aims by offering awards, training and mentoring support. CLP offers three levels of Conservation Awards:

The application deadline for full proposals is 23rd February 2015 for ALL applications. Those applying for Conservation Follow-up and Conservation Leadership Awards must submit a Logical Framework and the Final Report of their previous CLP project as part of their application materials. Awards will be announced in April 2015
