Thank you for visiting the funding section of our website!
The aim of Stiftung Artenschutz is the conservation of highly threatened animal species, especially those that have been lacking resources and interest, as well as the protection and restoration of their habitats.
Our two funding schemes include a special funding pot for the conservation of amphibians, the "Amphibian Conservation Fund", and a Small Grants Programme open for all animal species and conservation activities.
The current call for proposals is closed for applications. The next Grant Call is expected to open in summer 2023.
More information can be found on our website and on Youtube.
