The 2015 Latin American Wild Felid Research Grant

Through support from The Summerlee Foundation, the Wild Felid Research and Management Association was given the opportunity to award grants to well-deserving projects on wild felids in Latin American countries. 
Five recipients and their projects were selected for the 2015 grant and each was awarded $5,000. Information on their projects can be found in The Wild Felid Monitor, V9(I2) and V10(I1). We hope to offer the grant again in the future.

   Offered by
The Wild Felid Research and Management Association

Through generous support from The Summerlee Foundation, the Wild Felid Research and Management Association (WFA) has been given the opportunity to award 2-3 grants, ranging from $3,000 to $5,000 each, to well-deserving projects on wild felids in Latin American countries. WFA is looking for projects that will have a tangible impact on wild felid species and habitat conservation through: the application of biological information; education of, and outreach to, local communities; and/or implementation of innovations that reduce human-felid conflict and encourage coexistence.
