Conservation Management Units research fund and Data Deficient Species Survey Fund 2013-14

Information about these funds for the 2012-13 financial year, the application forms, and a sample of the “Government Lite” contract form which we intend to use for simple external contracts, typically under $20,000 are available at

The two funds are now being administered in parallel by the same group, as both have the aim of increasing information to allow accurate listings in the New Zealand Threat Clasification System.

Applications to both funds close on 10 June. $30k is available this year for the CMU fund and $65k for the DD fund.

Don’t hesitate to contact me or other panel members (see the cc. line of this email) for more information or for help in preparing proposals. Please feel free to distribute to anyone else who may be interested.
