Launched in 2018, The Lion’s Share Fund is the first ever multi-partner global platform hosted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) for wildlife conservation and animal care with a goal of stemming the rapid loss of biodiversity by leveraging private sector leadership. As part of the initiative’s overall investment strategy, the Lion’s Share invests funding as small grants to programs and initiatives that benefit wildlife and environmental conservation worldwide. These grants are small investments that have the potential to provide visible and tangible contributions to global wildlife conservation efforts.

The Lion’s Share calls for proposals for the Resilience in Wildlife Community Grants, which supports initiatives in communities dependent on wildlife-based tourism and income from associated activities, to withstand this current, and future, outbreak of pandemics and other global shocks.

The small grants (US$ 20,000 – 50,000) are disbursed to non-profit organizations in developing countries seeking funds to catalyze community/local-level action to protect severely threatened ecosystems or wildlife in their last strongholds. These grants will finance local projects that find innovative solutions to wildlife conservation challenges, while simultaneously enhancing local people’s well-being and livelihood.
