EDGE Fellowships


Join ZSL EDGE programme

The Zoological Society of London’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 or coral species. We are now accepting applications for the 2014-16 Fellowship Programme.


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



·         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 a top-priority EDGE species;


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


·         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.


The application form, guidelines, and eligibility criteria are available to download on the EDGE of Existence website ( or can be requested from the EDGE Fellows Co-ordinator (Ova e-mail adresa je zaštićena od spambota.
