Posted by Shofi Fida Saturday, January 2, 2016 0 comments
Closing Date: January 31, 2016.

OPCFHK envisions a world where Asian wildlife remains biologically diverse under the stewardship of humans, corporations and governments.  We are committed to advocating, facilitating and participating in effective conservation efforts of Asian wildlife, with an emphasis on Chinese white dolphins and giant pandas, as well as their habitats.  This will be achieved through partnerships, fundraising, research and education.

With limited available funds and given the urgency of conservation efforts, it is important that research studies are designed to be effective for conservation.  Therefore, we seek proposals with measurable conservation outcomes.

The Foundation solicits projects on threatened animal species in Asia, particularly on the Foundation’s thematic species; giant pandas and Chinese white dolphins.  The outcomes of the studies must contribute to successful conservation and could entail the development of conservation action plans and/or community education programmes.  All proposals must include relevant, specific conservation targets and measurable milestones and evaluation of the programme’s effectiveness with specific and quantifiable indicators.  Projects should focus on one of the areas below:
A. Conservation Research and Management
B. Community Education and Capacity Building

Regular projects last from 1 to 2 years should focus on either one nature of the above.  For multiple-year projects last for 3 to 5 years, both natures can be submitted but in two separate proposals. Applicants shall also explain how resources and the project works are synergised and complementing each other to achieve the overall goal.

Total Funding: 

Majority of successful applications in 2015/16 were one-year projects averaged HK$ 184,000/year (US$23,000).  The funding provided is to cover the relevant project expenses during the approved project period, as stated in the application.  Multiple-year proposals last from 3 to a maximum of 5 years and limited to HK$ 1 million per year will be considered separately based on project conservation impact.
