THE RAPID RESPONSE FACILITY
The Rapid Response Facility (RRF) is an emergency fund that provides grants to protected areas during sudden crises. In particular, we fund efforts to alleviate disaster situations affecting wildlife in UNESCO natural World Heritage sites.
Natural World Heritage sites are the most important sites globally for the conservation of nature. But emergencies such as wild fires, oil spills, armed conflicts or unsustainable developments can destroy our precious natural heritage in an incredibly short timeframe.
We get funds to the field fast; coming to the aid of the planet’s most irreplaceable sites, and species, in times of greatest need.
*Please note, we will not be processing new applications over the Christmas period and will be closed from Monday 19th December 2022 - 3rd January 2023.*
