The Fund for Wild Nature invests in cutting-edge grassroots organizations and innovative conservation efforts in the United States and Canada that meet emerging needs for protecting biodiversity and wilderness.
The Fund provides small grants for North American campaigns to save native species and wild ecosystems, with particular emphasis on actions designed to defend threatened wilderness and biological diversity.
The Fund supports biocentric goals that are premised on effective and intelligible strategies, and gives special attention to ecological issues not currently receiving sufficient public attention and funding.
The Fund supports advocacy, litigation, public policy work, development of citizen science, and similar endeavors.
All projects must be highly cost-effective. The Fund rarely supports proposals from organizations with large budgets (over $250,000 annually).
The Fund does not support basic scientific research, private land acquisition, individual action or study, conferences, or organizations which receive any government funding. Media projects are only supported if they have a clear strategic value and a concrete plan for dissemination of the final product.
