Save the Gibbon Grant

The SSA has created the “Save the Gibbon Fund” from money raised during the Year of the Gibbon in 2015 and from events on World Gibbon Day (24th October). Grant applications are now open. An independent panel made from SSA membership, and with no affiliation with the proposals submitted, will be formed to assess the winner(s). We will then follow the development of this project through the SSA website. A particular focus for the award will be on new projects developed by habitat country nationals to help the development of capacity for gibbon conservation in-country.
