Grants of up to $50,000 to USA, Canada, and International individuals for marketing projects that will inspire proactive wildlife conservation activities. Funding is intended for projects that present complex data visually, systematically test marketing and visualization methods, or develop and evaluate new techniques directed to motivate action to conserve wildlife. National Geographic Society funded projects should be bold, innovative, and transformative and have a primary focus in conservation, education, research, storytelling, or technology.
One of the greatest challenges in addressing wildlife issues is that simply communicating the science is often insufficient to inspire action. The goal of the Making the Case for Nature request for proposals is to determine effective ways to market wildlife to inspire positive action to save species by applying principles of science communication.
Priority will be given to projects that aim to do one or more of the following:
- Identify the specific visual and narrative communication mechanisms that will elicit action for wildlife conservation from target audiences. Multidisciplinary collaborations between scientists (e.g., neuroscientists, psychologists) and visual artists (e.g., photographers, videographers, painters, technologists) are strongly encouraged
- Measure differences in attitudes and or behaviors across diverse audiences (e.g., ages, geographic regions, backgrounds) based on how information about wildlife is presented; proposals that use creative approaches to overcome sample size issues are encouraged
- Apply and test social marketing principles to determine best practices when communicating about wildlife conservation to inspire action and increase or maintain engagement from target audiences
