Description: 

Deadline Passed 4/6/2018. Deadline for 2019 Unknown. The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is pleased to announce a new round of grantmaking through its Climate Adaptation Fund - a program to support projects that implement effective interventions for wildlife adaptation to climate change. The Climate Adaptation Fund is made possible by a generous gift from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. The Climate Adaptation Fund seeks projects focused on achieving biodiversity conservation outcomes in the face of a changing climate. The program seeks to support actions that anticipate and respond to potential climate change impacts and maximize long-term conservation success. To achieve these ends, the program prioritizes projects that manage for dynamic ecological processes, landscape functionality, and species assemblages, rather than those aimed at maintaining historical conditions or individual species.
