The Habitat Foundation is committed to supporting capacity building opportunities among the next generation of scientists, practitioners, and community organizers. We provide specialized training designed to equip frontliners with a range of skills that are essential to the challenging work they do.
In November 2019, in partnership with the Southeast Asia Rainforest Research Partnership (SEARRP), a leader in rainforest research, and Tropical Biology Association (TBA), we developed a specialized Boot Camp for Conservation Leaders and Changemakers for frontliners from across Malaysia and Southeast Asia. The Boot Camp was very positively received and we are excited to announce that we will be holding a Boot Camp in September this year and will post a Call for Applications in April 2020.
In June 2020, we will be launching our first Writing for Publication Boot Camp which is intended for graduate students and young academics that have research findings to share. Only 12 candidates will have the opportunity to participate in this highly-specialized training which will equip them with a strong foundation to confidently approach the challenge of academic publication and to build their professional impact.
The Habitat Foundation provides Travel Grants for suitable applicants to participate in regional and international training workshops, forums, conferences, and other relevant meetings related to biodiversity conservation biology, conservation practice, ecology, climate change and sustainability that would give them the opportunity to engage with their peers, present their work, and strengthen their practice.
Applications for the 2020 Travel Grants may be submitted up to 30 August 2020 and should be for any travel which will take place before January 2021.
