Wildlife Grant 

Environmental solutions for the future can begin with you!

Whether you’re in a city, rural area or a suburb, wildlife is all around you.  In many places, that wildlife faces challenges.  If you’re a high school student with a creative idea for conserving and protecting wildlife, Planet Connect is offering grants of $1,000 to implement a project in your local school or community.  In addition, all grantees will receive funding to participate in a local summer internship focused on wildlife conservation or natural resources. 

Here’s your chance to make a difference!  Apply for a national Planet Connect Youth Engagement Grant today!  Visit http://planetconnect.org/2012wcgrants to learn more and to watch the grant promo video. 

Need some help brainstorming project ideas?  Check out the grant projects and internship summaries from the 2011 student grantees here: http://planetconnect.org/2011grantwinners.

 Apply by February 1, 2012!
