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. This time, they are: Mountain, Nature and Ocean - and in line with EOCA's focus - all have elements of raising awareness of plastic pollution and cleaning up waste in wild places. Please get involved by choosing your favourite project in each category during our biannual vote.
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:
Mountain projects are those projects located at higher altitudes.
Nature projects are those projects which focus on the protection, restoration or enhancement of habitats and species around the world - for wildlife and for people.
Ocean projects are those projects which are looking to restore beach, coast, seacliff and ocean habitats.
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.
VOTING HAS NOW ENDED - THANK YOU FOR GETTING INVOLVED!
