Indigenous Grant for Bird Research and Conservation

Indigenous Grant for Bird Research and Conservation

Indigenous knowledge of native Australian birds, their life cycle and habitat needs is profound and has made a substantial contribution to the scientific study of birds in this country. With the creation of the Indigenous Grant for Bird Research and Conservation, BirdLife Australia wishes to acknowledge this contribution and facilitate the further engagement of Indigenous Australians in research and conservation of our native birds.

Applications for the fifth Indigenous Grant for Bird Research and Conservation are now being accepted. The closing date for applications is 31st of May. Successful applicants will be announced during NAIDOC week (8 - 15 July).

Indigenous rangers, community groups, schools, organisations and those who work directly with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons are warmly invited to apply for the award.
