Saving Saigas: Projects Around the World

Young Conservation Leaders Award

The SCA recognises that it is imperative to support the next generation of conservationists, and so with our Young Conservation Leaders award we are able to support aspiring conservationists (individuals or groups) with grants of $1000 each, (given in two payments of $500, with the second one conditional on good progress). The awards are to support a 12 month project which links to the ongoing work of the SCA in the winner’s country. We are calling applications from conservationists between the ages of 12 and 30 who live in China, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia or Uzbekistan.

The young conservation leaders work with the SCA’s administrative team to further the aims of the SCA. They work on one aspect of the SCA’s activities of their own choosing. We hope that the reports from previous winners published on the SCA website and on our Facebook pages will inspire creative ideas for this year’s entries.

The young conservation leaders will be mentored by a member of the SCA Steering Committee from their country. The SCA would also support them to access opportunities for funding and training, e.g. WCN student internships, the Student Conference on Conservation Science, helping them write a Rufford grant, or other support that they may need.
