The NWT Species Conservation and Recovery Fund​ provides funding for projects that support the long-term conservation, recovery, and protection of species that are at risk in the NWT.

Please submit your completed application form if you have an idea for a project that:

  • Addresses threats to species, habitats, landscapes, or ecosystems.
  • Fills knowledge gaps related to species, habitats, or threats.

The maximum amount of funding available for the program is $60,000 per year, to be split among several projects.
