The AFA continues to seek out important research, conservation, or field biology projects that may benefit from our financial assistance. The AFA Conservation committee reviews inquiries or applications each year and decides on the projects that are a good fit with the “mission” of the American Federation of Aviculture, Inc.
Below is a list of links to information about the current projects chosen for the 2012 conservation season. Please take a minute to familiarize yourself with these projects and their goals, and please donate to the AFA 2012 Conservation Fund so that we can assist these projects and others this year. If you have information on a project that may benefit from AFAs assistance, please visit our pages explaining How to Submit a Conservation Grant Proposal and the Grant Proposal Submission Form, and then contact Rick Jordan by email at AFAOffice@AFABirds.org, or write to The American Federation of Aviculture, Inc.
