Conservation Grant Program

Sequoia Park Zoo’s Conservation Grant Program provides funding to individuals or organizations with projects that demonstrate a clear benefit to wildlife and their habitats. Awards are granted up to $1000, and 3-4 projects have been funded each year. The zoo is proud to be able to use these grants to make a positive impact on wildlife both locally and globally.

Proposal Guidelines and Application Process

Grant proposals should be submitted by individuals or organizations for projects that directly address wildlife conservation and management, habitat restoration, or conservation education, with an emphasis on local projects and projects that benefit species represented at Sequoia Park Zoo. Project proposals are accepted in the winter, and are reviewed by the Conservation Advisory Committee.  Support is limited to projects that can be completed within one year and funds will be granted up to $1,000.
