Armstrong Bequest Grants

Applications for the second round of small grants from the Geoff Armstrong Bequest open on 1 Devember 2020. Applications must be made through The Wettenhall Environment Trust (WET).

Grants are available to provide financial support to projects that will make a positive difference to malleefowl conservation and preservation in Victoria, or to promote the enhancement of the natural environment for malleefowl in Victoria.

Applications for projects in other States will be considered but Victoria must benefit in some way.

This may include research projects or activities that include on-ground monitoring, raising awareness of malleefowl issues or undertaking field research.

It may also include research and/or education into known or emerging mallefowl threats (both human and natural) such as predators, competition, land management or climatic impacts on malleefowl numbers or breeding activities.

The citizen science model of science, research and education is strongly supported by the VMRG as is community education and training that leads to malleefowl conservation and preservation.
