Detailed Description

The Prince Bernhard Nature Fund (PBNF) is currently accepting grant proposals from organizations with an aim to help save critically endangered flora and fauna in the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, Asia and Latin America.

The Fund prefers to act as a catalyzer
of larger initiatives, and link its project support as much as possible
to larger themes and organizations.

The Prince Bernhard Nature Fund was established in 1994 by the late Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. The Fund’s mission is to support small, preferably local initiatives towards the conservation
and wise use of nature and our natural resource base. Effectively the
Fund aims to help save critically endangered flora and fauna.
