The China Mangrove Conservation Network (CMCN) is granting small funds of up to 2,000 yuan (about US$293) for projects that protect mangrove and seashore wetlands.

In 2008, CMCN won the top British environmental award, the Whitley Fund for Nature (WFN). CMCN is putting all the money from the award into mangrove protection and education in China. CMCN aims to increase the initiative of China's NGOs and raise public awareness about mangrove and wetlands conservation.


Who can apply?

NGOs, schools, universities, student clubs and individuals located in mangrove or swamp areas

What kinds of projects are eligible for the fund?

All kinds of projects are encouraged, as long as the activities involved are related to environmental education and the protection of mangroves. CMCN is especially interested in sponsoring projects that focus on ecological restoration and research of mangrove areas. CMCN will examine the process of each project. No project should last more than six months in duration.
