Supporting vital conservation projects around the world

Every two years, Taronga Conservation Society Australia awards funding to projects and programs that demonstrate measurable conservation outcomes in the field — anywhere in the world.

Since launching its Field Conservation Grants in 2008, Taronga has given over $500,000 to dozens of vital conservation programs across the world. Projects that have benefited from a Taronga Field Conservation Grant have helped to protect and regenerate habitats, stop poaching and trafficking of wildlife and reduce conflict between communities and wildlife living side by side.

Taronga is for the wild. As a not-for-profit, Taronga has an absolute commitment to the conservation and securing a shared future for wildlife and people. Taronga Field Conservation Grants are one more way Taronga is working to achieve that vision.
