2021 NGP Recipients

WIRES committed $5 million dollars to a five-year National Grants Program to be rolled out from 2021-2025. The WIRES National Grants Program (WIRES NGP) is designed to support best practice rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife, an increase in emergency preparedness in the sector, and native species recovery projects to improve long-term outcomes for wildlife in Australia. For more information and application details, view the WIRES National Grants Program overview.

As part of the grants program we have awarded two special named grants in honour of Mikla Lewis and Pat Connors, two incredible individuals critical to WIRES inception and development. These grants are The Mikla Lewis OAM Habitat Restoration & Enhancement Grant, and the Pat Connors Avian Grant.

In 2021, there were 67 successful projects, with every state and territory across Australia represented.
