Priority will be given to projects that aim to do one or more of the following:
- Identify the specific visual and narrative communication mechanisms that will elicit action for wildlife conservation from target audiences. Multidisciplinary collaborations between scientists (e.g., neuroscientists, psychologists) and visual artists (e.g., photographers, videographers, painters, technologists) are strongly encouraged
- Measure differences in attitudes and/or behaviors across diverse audiences (e.g., ages, geographic regions, backgrounds) based on how information about wildlife is presented; proposals that use creative approaches to overcome sample size issues are encouraged
- Apply and test social marketing principles to determine best practices when communicating about wildlife conservation to inspire action and increase or maintain engagement from target audiences
Typical proposal requests should be less than $30,000, but applicants may request up to $50,000. Successful applicants may use awarded funds over one or two years. Please see the Preparing Your Proposal page regarding budgetary guidance. All applications should include a clear review of the state of knowledge about the topic and a plan for evaluating the outcomes of the proposed work
