The Grants & Opportunities section of Oryx is available to any conservation organization or programme that wishes to bring relevant conservation grants and opportunities to the notice of the journal's readers. If you would like us to include news of a grant or funding opportunity in the journal, please contact us. We are aware of several important programmes that we regularly display in the Grants & Opportunities section, and we draw your attention to these below. With some of these, such as the Conservation Leadership Programme, the Oryx Editorial Office helps in a capacity building role.
