The Barcelona Zoo Foundation has opened the application process for the 2018 grants for research and conservation projects. These grants are meant to support those projects that share the Zoo’s values of conservation, education and awareness towards biodiversity.
This year’s grants are:
- 14th Edition of the Floquet de Neu Grant for research projects on primates, focusing on any of these disciplines: conservation, ecology, genetics, ethology, cognitive abilities, reproduction, communication, animal well-being, etc. both in captivity and in the wild.
- 10th Edition of the Grants of the Research and Conservation Programme for specific projects proposed by external researchers, in accordance with the general goals of the Barcelona Zoo Foundation in the field of research and conservation.
- 6th Edition of the Antoni Jonch Grant for projects focused on the research on the native fauna of Catalonia and its conservation.
Since 2009, the Zoo has granted a total of 827.242€ in scholarships, which, along with our research and conservation programs, constitute a proof of our commitment to the protection of endangered wildlife.
