The British Herpetological Society

The BHS Conservation Fund

Apply for BHS funding for purchasing sites for amphibian and/or reptile conservation and grants for practical conservation work.

The BHS Conservation Fund (formerly Land Fund) can be used in two ways. Firstly to provide funds for purchasing sites in the UK with either rare, less widespread or excellent amphibian and/or reptile assemblages with a management plan in place. Sites are considered on their individual merits and the species concerned should have a local species action plan as part of the local biodiversity action plan. Secondly the fund can give grants up to £1500 for practical conservation work in the UK such as pond creation, purchase of tools and materials for habitat management preferably match funded. Applications will be assessed on their individual merits.

For further information regarding reserves acquisition and grants for conservation work contact the BHS Conservation officer (see below).

To apply, download the relevant application form, which can be filled in on your computer, and return by email the BHS Conservation officer.
