Rewilding Innovation Fund Reopens for 2024 (UK)
Rewilding Britain is offering grants of up to £15,000 to help remove barriers to rewilding projects across Britain, whether they are at the early planning stage or wish to scale up pre-existing projects.
The Rewilding Innovation Fund will support rewilding projects on land and at sea, at a scale of more than 40 hectares, that adhere to Rewilding Britain’s rewilding principles, and could potentially unlock further funding or move a project in scale.
Funding can be used to cover costs such as:
- Business plans and strategies.
- Community engagement activities or co-design.
- Feasibility studies.
- Technological innovations.
Priority will be given to applicants who are taking an innovative approach to land and marine rewilding, and applicants that will help develop learning and evidence for others within the Rewilding Network.
Applicants must first become a member of the Rewilding Network before submitting a full application. There are typically two funding rounds per year.
The next deadline for applications is 29 February 2024.
