Emergency funds are for projects or situations that require logistical, expertise and/or financial support outside the normal funding cycles can be allocated on special and rare occasions when these require unique, urgent and immediate attention. Only Chondrichthyes species (sharks, rays, skates, sawfish and chimaeras) or habitat related projects will be considered.
The SOSF will only consider environmental and conservation emergencies, not urgencies linked to lack of preparation or planning. This might be, for example, where individuals of a rare species are under imminent threat, or critical conservation equipment requires repair.
Please read the funding guidelines carefully.
