To support the advancement of animal biology research, habitat monitoring and environmental conservation, Wildlife Acoustics is proud to offer a grant program that provides scientists with products and software to help further their research into the study of bats, birds, frogs and other vocal wildlife.
New and Improved for 2022
They know times have been tough. They are so grateful to their customers for supporting their business these past few years and they want to give back.
They’re happy to announce that they’re increasing the value that they are giving away per quarter through their grant program, from $5,000 to $12,000 per quarter. They hope this allows them to support more critical bioacoustics research projects around the world.
How It Works
Every quarter, Wildlife Acoustics will give away up to $12,000 worth of eligible products to grant recipients worldwide. Applicants may each request up to $4000 worth of products and software licenses. Recipients also have the opportunity to have their work featured on their website and social media channels.
Grant recipients must be associated with a charitable, educational or other tax-exempt organization.
Consideration will be given to projects that meet the following criteria:
• Project makes significant use of wildlife vocalization recordings for data collection and/or analysis.
• The work advances scientific knowledge and contributes to long-term conservation.
• The grant would have significant impact on the success of the project.
• The application provides adequate information to facilitate project evaluation, including detailed expected outcomes and the need for bioacoustics data to support those outcomes.
• The project must begin within one year of the award.
If you are awarded a grant, you’ll be expected to:
• Provide written acceptance of the grant and agree to the terms and conditions.
• Maintain contact with Wildlife Acoustics and provide quarterly project updates.
• When possible, acknowledge the support of Wildlife Acoustics, Inc. in any presentations, meetings, publications and/or materials resulting from the project.
• Submit a final report within two months of project completion, or that phase of the project. Refer to FAQ on reporting guidelines for what is expected in the final report. If you fail to submit reports, you will be ineligible for future grants.
