Conservation & Science Grants
The Phoenix Zoo's mission is to provide experiences that inspire people and
motivate them to live in ways that promote the well being of the natural world.
Our Conservation & Science Department's mission is to provide ex situ support
for in situ conservation. We accomplish our goals through participation and
leadership in conservation efforts on-grounds and throughout our region, and by
supporting conservation and science programs worldwide.
Priority is given to proposals that demonstrate a measurable, common-
sense approach to conservation and science issues, appropriate research
methodologies, effective knowledge sharing and capacity building strategies, ex
situ support of in situ conservation, and active involvement of local communities.
The Phoenix Zoo Conservation & Science Grants are small grants intended to
provide seed money or to fund critical components of conservation programs.
Grant requests must not exceed $3000 per award.
