Project funding is allocated on a rolling basis. Review the funding guidelines to be invited for proposal.
We started this fund in 2018, with generous support from biotech company Promega, to hasten impactful innovations in conservation and to clearly demonstrate the benefits of genetic rescue biotechnologies to the broader conservation community.
We plan to announce a new call for proposals in the summer of 2021. Please join our mailing list to receive announcements.
Wild Genomes is designed to accelerate the genomic sequencing and biobanking of species that have a clear conservation need. Through this program, we aim to put the fundamental tools of genetic rescue directly into the hands of those who manage wildlife.
