Twice a year, we receive applications from conservation organisations with projects that they would like us to consider funding. Following a rigorous selection procedure, we create a shortlist of projects we would be happy to fund and ask for YOUR help in choosing three projects to receive funding!! We put our shortlisted projects into 3 categories - which this time are Water, Forest and Mountain. Please get involved by choosing your favourite project in each category during our biannual vote.
You can read more about our funded projects in our 'Current Projects' section of our website.
All of our great shortlisted projects address a threat to a species or a habitat AND have a link to the outdoor enthusiast. The projects are put into 3 categories depending on their focus. For Autumn 2017, these categories will be:
Water projects are those projects concerned with the conservation of aquatic habitats and their surrounds - Marine, freshwater, wetlands, rivers are all included.
Forest projects are those projects which focus on the protection, restoration or enhancement of forest habitats - for wildlife and for people.
Mountain projects are those projects located at higher altitudes.
PLEASE NOTE: You can vote in each of the categories for your favourite project. You can however vote only once in each category - either on one of our websites OR on the website of one of our magazine partners.
Voting will take place in March and October each year. To be alerted to the vote starting, please follow us on Facebook or Twitter or sign up to our newsletter via this website.
THE 2017 AUTUMN VOTE WILL RUN 4-18 OCTOBER (ending 12noon (GMT+1) on Wednesday 18 October).
