The Wildlife Habitat Charitable Trust National Habitat Conservation Grants

The Wildlife Habitat Charitable Trust National Habitat Conservation Grants For both national and international grants the WHCT is keen to support projects which target the conservation of known breeding habitat of the UK’s hunted migratory species.

Trustees of the Wildlife Habitat Charitable Trust have agreed a new policy on making grants. Applications will now only be approved once a year at the April/May Trustees meeting (the date will be published once it is known).
