We can only help support Wales’ birds if we understand where and how they live. Conservation work based on well-disseminated, good quality research work is crucial, and we are fortunate in the UK that such activities are undertaken by both professional organisations and expert, unpaid volunteers.
In order to support such work, WOS offers small grants. We award grants of up to £500 towards projects that benefit species listed as priorities on the application form. However, consideration will also be given to research into species for which there is a significant gap in knowledge.
Applications for 2020 are now open and applications should be made using the application form which can be downloaded here. The deadline for completed applications is 29th February 2020. For more information, go to the Small Grants page.
