Waitt Foundation - request for proposals - MPAs over the finish line

The Waitt Foundation takes a hands-on, partnership-oriented approach to grant making. We fund projects and campaigns aimed at ending overfishing, the creation and expansion of marine protected areas, marine spatial planning, and raising public awareness about the rapid decline in ocean health. With a focus on enduring public private partnerships and conservation finance, our principal goal is often to support governments in achieving their own sustainable fisheries and ocean conservation goals.

We chose megafauna because they are particularly valuable in economic, ecological and societal terms, and are challenging and expensive to conserve.
