About The Wallacea Trust
The Wallacea Trust aims to address the decline of environmental biodiversity found across the world’s poorest countries. We do this in partnership with local communities – developing sustainable economic incentives, small business ventures and providing support.
We bring together academics, conservationists and local stakeholders to manage marine and terrestrial projects at vulnerable sites across the globe.
To target our research, education and wardenship on the ground, we work alongside Operation Wallacea, an expedition and research organisation that undertakes large scale biodiversity monitoring and conservation research.
Our scholarship programme gives funding to disadvantaged students from UK and the USA to give them the opportunity to participate in biodiversity projects in developing countries.
Putting local enterprise at the centre of conservation
The Wallacea Trust was created in 2000 to fund conservation management projects at our sites in 14 countries
Research data is at the heart of what we do. Thanks to rigorous biodiversity monitoring we are able to benchmark the difference we make.
The Alfred Wallace Awards
Students awarded an Alfred Wallace grant are able to use the money towards participation on a scientific research project in the Wallacea region of Indonesia.
