> Club300 Bird Protection
> Since 1991 the Swedish Club300 has contributed more than USD600,000 to bird
> protection projects all around the world. Projects we have supported include
> conservation and research on many rare, threatened or little known species
> like Guerney's Pitta, Hawaiian Crow, Pale-headed Brush-finch, Puaiohi and
> Sumatran Ground Cuckoo.
> The majority of the contributions come directly from our Swedish members. The
> foundation is also distributing funds collected at bird fairs, or donated by
> persons or associations. During the last five years we have on average
> donated around USD8,000 annually. Since our funds are limited our focus is to
> contribute money to highly threatened or poorly known species.
> Below are the criteria and guidelines on how to apply for funding. We urge
> you to read these through carefully since failure to abide by any of the
> criteria may lead to the application not being considered for funding.
> General guidelines:
> * Only applications concerning projects aimed at birds listed as Critically
> Endangered (CR), Endangered (EN), Extinct in the Wild (EW) or Data Deficient
> (DD) on the IUCN Red List of threatened species are eligible for funding.
> These categories comprise about 590 of the worlds most threatened or least
> known species. A list of these species can be generated on the Birdlife
> International Data zone<http://www.birdlife.org/datazone/species/search>.
> * Ongoing projects that receive or previously have received support from
> Club300 are excepted from the above criterion.
> * The maximum annual amount granted to a single project is USD 5,000.
> * Applications are accepted on a yearly basis.
> * Club 300 will monitor the progress in all projects that are granted
> financial support.
> How to apply:
> * Applications for each year must be received by July 31st. Which
> applications are granted will be decided by the board of Club300 at their
> autumn meeting and communicated to the applicants before the end of each
> year. Decisions by the Club300 board on which projects to support are final
> and cannot be appealed by the applicant.
