Greetings. Various members and friends of COG have this year (as in the past) made very welcome tax-deductible donations to the Canberra Birds Conservation Fund (CBCF). As a consequence,
the Fund is inviting grant applications to cover projects that meet COG’s environmental objectives, listed below.
Although most of the grants made in the past have been for ornithological research (and applications of this type continue to be welcome), the Fund also provides small grants for conservation, education
and related projects.
Information on the grants made to date are online at
For further information about applying for a grant, or donating, please contact the Fund’s convenor, David McDonald
