FCF Conservation Grants and the financial support of individual FCF members goes to proposals that improve feline conservation through local education, programs that reduce or mitigate human/feline conflicts, and the monitoring and in-depth studies of wild cats that aid in the conservation of the species. Any proposals seeking FCF consideration should specifically address the conservation value of the project. Although priority is given to threatened species according to the IUCN Red List ranking, other wild cat species will also considered.
Because survival of a species is best achieved in the wild, FCF support is contingent on establishing in-situ field programs in parallel with captive programs. Species of interest to FCF include the Andean cat, Bay cat, Clouded leopard, Fishing cat, Flat-headed cat, Geoffroy's cat, Guigna, Pampas cat, Margay and Marbled cat.
The Conservation Committee receives grant application proposals submitted to the FCF. The Committee evaluates submissions and recommends grants to those proposals that match FCF goals.
FCF's current conservation projects budget is set by the board of directors annually. Substantial additional funding to specific projects is also provided by FCF members and through your donations to the FCF Conservation Grants Fund. If you are currently working in the feline conservation field and are interested in applying for an FCF Conservation grant, please fill out a grant application and submit it by email to the Conservation Grants Committee.
The FCF Conservation Committee reviews grant application proposals submitted to FCF. A Conservation Grant Committee will evaluate submissions and award grants to those proposals that match FCF goals. Dr. Jim Sanderson is a member of the conservation grants committee.
