Taronga Green Grants are open to anyone in the community who has an idea for plastic free oceans that they want to see put into action. These ideas can come from individuals, community groups, indigenous groups, inventors, schools, environmental education centres, social enterprises and universities but the grants are not open to for-profit business or government agencies.
Applicants under the age of 18 must obtain parent/guardian permission before applying.
Directors, management, employees, officers and contractors (and their immediate families) of Taronga or of the agencies or companies associated with the promotion of this grant cannot be lead agents in an application but may be advisors, and contributors. “Immediate families” means spouse, ex-spouse, de-facto spouse, parent, stepparent, grandparent, step-grandparent, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew, natural or adopted child, and sibling or step-sibling (whether natural or adopted by a parent), whether or not they live in the same household as the director, manager, employee, officer or contractor. Any project that would like advice from a Taronga employee, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications from every Australian state and territory are welcome.
