The CLP Team Awards are a competitive process through which CLP aims to identify, recognise and empower rising stars in conservation, who work mainly in the developing world.

Awards are granted to teams undertaking high-priority projects that involve not just research but also practical actions and community outreach to promote pro-conservation attitudes and achieve tangible, effective and long-lasting conservation solutions.

Through their new online application portal, eligible applicants can apply for one of three types of award:

  1. Future Conservationist Awards (up to $15,000 per project)
  2. Conservation Follow-Up Awards (up to $25,000 per project; available only to previous recipients of a Future Conservationist Award)
  3. Conservation Leadership Award (up to $50,000 per project; available only to previous recipients of a Follow-Up Award).

Many past recipients of Conservation Leadership Programme awards have gone on to lead successful careers in the conservation sector, including establishing their own NGOs, influencing conservation policy, discovering new species, driving forward scientific knowledge, and bringing threatened species back from the brink of extinction.
