Saiga Conservation AllianceProposals are sought for small saiga conservation projects. Eligible projects will:

  • Be concerned with the conservation of the saiga antelope in the wild (not in captivity)

  • Be a maximum of one year in length (to be completed by the end of September 2013)
  • Have a budget up to US$2,000

The project proposal should clearly demonstrate how the project contributes to fulfilling the goals of the Convention on Migratory Species’ Medium Term Work Programme for the saiga antelope ( Within this, it can involve any activity (public engagement, research, anti-poaching activities etc). It is hoped that a wide range of projects can be supported, geographically and in terms of conservation actions.

The Small Grants Programme is not intended for the payment of salaries, honoraria or overheads (other than directly incurred field costs). However, if it is necessary to incur expenditure of the types listed above for the fulfilment of the project aims, the reason for these expenses must be clearly laid out in the project proposal.

The proposal should be not more than 4 sides in total, using Times New Roman font of not less than 12 point and single-spaced, and the word limits for each section should be abided to.

Projects that do not fulfil all of the requirements set out above will not be considered.
