ASAP Species Conservation Fund


ASAP Species are some of the most at risk of extinction on the planet. The ASAP Species Conservation Fund is designed to support ASAP Partners in their efforts to conserve ASAP Species and their habitats.

To be considered for an ASAP Species Conservation Fund, an organisation must be an existing ASAP Partner. To become an ASAP Partner please visit here to apply.

The priorities for ASAP Species Conservation Fund are:

  • projects within Southeast Asia, but priority conservation actions for ASAP species outside this region will be considered where there is strong justification.
  • projects submitted by national organisations and those where the Project Lead is from the country in which the conservation actions take place.
  • ASAP Species that are receiving less conservation attention globally than is average for ASAP Species, and to applications making a clear case that the species in question is severely under-supported globally.

For full details on what the grant programme will support and on eligibility, please see the application guidelines.

ASAP Partners are invited to submit pre-proposals for a maximum of SGD 16,000. The duration of the ASAP-funded project or project component should be 12 months or less. Clear justification as to how the activities will support ASAP Species conservation must be provided.

Interested applicants are required to submit a pre-proposal to with the subject heading “ASAP Species Conservation Fund Pre-proposal”.  We will be reviewing proposals as we receive them, so we encourage ASAP Partners to apply early to avoid disappointment.  Successful applicants at this stage will be invited to submit a full proposal, which should be submitted within 3 weeks.

If you have any questions about eligibility or require some advice or support in developing your application, please contact the ASAP Secretariat at

Please note that funding for this opportunity is limited and the grant will close once funding is allocated.
