ZSL’s EDGE of Existence programme is the only global conservation initiative focusing specifically on threatened species that represent a significant amount of unique evolutionary history. One of the most effective ways in which the programme is working to secure the future of EDGE species is by awarding two-year Fellowships to future conservation leaders, EDGE Fellows, working on poorly-known EDGE mammal, amphibian, bird, reptile, shark and ray species.
EDGE Fellows follow a comprehensive two-year training programme, comprising of:
A 4-week Conservation Tools training course at the beginning of the programme to provide Fellows with essential training in techniques to plan and implement their project
A grant of £10,000 to undertake a 2-year project on an eligible EDGE species
Ongoing technical support and mentorship (achieved via online modules, web-based tutorials/seminars, and field visits) throughout the Fellowship
A 2-week Conservation Leadership training course in London to support Fellows to scale up their projects
