Save Our Seas Foundation: Emergency Grants

Emergency funds for projects or situations that require logistical, expertise and/or financial support outside the normal funding cycles can be allocated on special occasions when these require unique, urgent and immediate attention. The Emergency Funds are allocated on rare occasions; they may be available as a matter of urgency outside the normal funding schedule.

Projects supported by the Foundation currently fall into one or more of three major programme areas:

  • Research
  • Conservation
  • Education

The focus of the Foundation is on charismatic marine megafauna, and more specifically on Elasmobranchs (Sharks, Rays and Skates).

Funding & Duration

Funding is awarded for a period not extending 12 months as is available up to a maximum of US $5,000 (approx. AUD $6,900)


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.
