Call for grant proposals to support rangers

Posted on May 25th in IRF.

Dear IRF member associations,

Please find here a call for submissions from The Thin Green Line Foundation for projects that support rangers in developing countries with either equipment and/or training.  Briefing notes can be found here, and the proposal submission form can be found here.

Grants of $5000 to $20,000 will be considered, with scope for larger projects if assessed as having merit and funds permit.
Applications close June 5, World Environment Day.

The forms are in English and submissions must be received in English. However you are welcome to translate them or use online translators to assist with the application process. TGLF will endeavour to ask for more information if the translations back into English are not clear.

Please note that items such as travel, congresses and conferences can not be funded through this grant process, it is for on-ground support only.

Please consider making an application and/or passing this information out to our networks such as ranger contacts, small NGO’s working with rangers, Indigenous ranger groups and so forth.

Please note that information and application forms are also available on the TGLF at


Kind Regards,

Sean Willmore
