Dear All


Happy New Year! ZSL are pleased to announce that we are now accepting
applications for the 2013-15 EDGE Fellowships. Please note, EDGE
Fellowships are specifically targeted at in-country, early career
conservationists working on priority mammal, amphibian or coral EDGE
species. Please see below for details.


Many thanks and best wishes for 2013!


EDGE Fellowships

The Zoological Society of London's EDGE of Existence programme
(www.edgeofexistence.org <http://www.edgeofexistence.org/> ) 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 or coral species. We are now
accepting applications for the 2013-15 Fellowship Programme.


EDGE Fellows follow a comprehensive two-year training programme
comprising of:


*         A 4-week Conservation Tools training course in Kenya (location
to be confirmed) at the beginning of the programme to provide Fellows
with essential training in techniques to plan and implement their

*         A grant to undertake a 2-year project on a top-priority EDGE

*         Ongoing technical support/mentoring (achieved via online
modules, web-based tutorials/seminars, and field visits) throughout the

*         A 2-week Conservation Leadership training course in London on
successful completion of Fellowship to help Fellows prepare for the next
stage of their career.
