Suspension of several IPS grant programmes in the current 2021 call

We sadly have to announce that the IPS Officers have made the difficult decision to suspend several of the IPS grant programmes at this time. The Galante Family Winery Conservation Scholarship, the Charles Southwick Conservation Education Commitment Award, and the Lawrence Jacobsen Education Development Grants will all go ahead so please do send your applications in; however, the current call for Captive care, Conservation, and Research grants has had to be suspended.
