Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (PARC) is an organization whose mission is to forge proactive partnerships that facilitate conservation of amphibians, reptiles, and the places they live. In time for the 2020 PARC regional meetings, PARC’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Task Team (DEITT) is happy to announce the PARC Increasing Participation Award (PIPA), a new award to support qualified individuals to attend a PARC regional meeting. PARC regional meetings consist of talks, workshops and networking opportunities for folks across all sectors and skill levels that are interested in amphibian and reptile conservation. Support at meetings for awardees will include travel support up to $500 and mentorship before and during the meeting. Award applications are open for Southeast PARC meeting (Feb 27 – Mar 1 in AL) and the Northwest PARC meeting (Apr 28 – May 1 in WA).
Eligible individuals include anyone interested in amphibians and reptiles AND who identifies as a member of a traditionally underrepresented group in conservation. At this time, we can only accept applications for United States citizens.
Southeast PARC meeting deadline is Jan 7, 2020 and Northwest PARC meeting deadline is Feb 15, 2020. For more details and to apply, please visit: https://tinyurl.com/
