We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2011/12 round of the SCA’s small grants competition. This year’s competition was generously supported by CIC and the Wildlife Conservation Network.
The SCA Small Grants Competition supports grassroots projects and builds capacity of those working to implement the priority actions of the Medium Term Work Programme of the MOU on saiga conservation under the Convention on Migratory Species.
This year we are pleased to be able to support three excellent projects, which represent a broad range of activities and geographical locations.
This year’s winners were:
Mingxia Zhang (China) “Reducing the illegal trade of saiga horn in Guangzhou, China”
Zharimbetov Mahsut Mahambetalievich (Kazakhstan) “Creation, duplication and distribution of the comic book ‘Saga of the saiga’”
Nostaeva Viktoria Aleksandrovna (Russia) “Creation of a mobile wide-frame information stand about the saiga and delivering lectures for the ecological education of schoolchildren in the Republic of Kalmykia”
Congratulations to all three winners!
