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

The specific environmental objectives of the Fund are
1. To encourage interest in, and develop knowledge of, the birds of the Canberra region
2. To promote and co-ordinate the study of birds
3. To promote the conservation of native birds and their habitats.

Who is eligible to apply for a grant from the Fund?The Fund welcomes applications from individuals and organisations for grants to support projects that will contribute to achieving its environmental objectives described above. Applications may be submitted at any time of the year.

Applications that meet all three of the Fund’s environmental objectives will be particularly favoured, especially those with a focus on the Canberra region.
