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 and ask for YOUR help in choosing three projects to receive funding!!  We put our shortlisted projects into 3 categories - Nature, Outdoor and Alpine.  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 user. The projects are put into 3 categories depending on their focus:

Nature projects are those projects concerned with the conservation of a specific species or habitat.

Outdoor projects are those projects which are located in places where people go to walk, bike or enjoy water activities.

Alpine 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 our website OR on the websites 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 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!
