Project Voting

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 :  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.  These categories are:

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 per electronic device - either on one of our websites OR on the website of one of our magazine partners.

Voting takes 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.

 RUN 9-23 MARCH  (ending 12 noon (GMT) on Friday 23rd March).

The funding is enabling us to repair a damaged section of the iconic Three Peaks long distance footpath and restore an area of internationally important upland habitat. Voting for our project was a simple but highly effective way for our supporters to show how strongly they felt about improving access and protecting the landscape of this wonderful area. Thank you , EOCA!
