Wildlife Adaptation Innovation Fund

WWF’s Wildlife Adaptation Innovation Fund supports the testing of new ideas that have potential to reduce the vulnerability of wildlife to changes in climate through on-the-ground projects. Successes and lessons learned from these pilot projects provide useful guidance that move conservation beyond business-as-usual approaches and rapidly scale promising efforts to help wildlife endure under conditions of rapid change. Projects piloted through this fund must meet the following criteria:

  • Address climate vulnerability of one or more target species through interventions that directly support those species or help communities adapt to change and thus reduce pressure on target species.
  • Be implemented in one year or less with plans to monitor results in following years.
  • Focus on implementation of a project rather than research.
