Science for Nature & People Partnership (SNAPP)

Everyone’s prosperity relies on nature.

Building a world in which people and nature thrive requires combining the expertise of many individuals and applying science to on-the-ground solutions. The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) began as a collaboration between NCEAS, The Nature Conservancy, and Wildlife Conservation Society that is grounded in this understanding.

SNAPP continues to issue calls for proposals once a year, typically in February or March. To get notifications of these calls and other announcements, subscribe to the SNAPP newsletter by emailing

Visit the SNAPP website to learn more about its mission, working groups, and solutions, as well as how you can support this innovative work.

The Science for Nature and People Partnership is generously funded by Shirley and Harry Hagey, Steve and Roberta Denning, Seth Neiman, Angela Nomellini and Ken Olivier, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, Ward W. and Priscilla B. Woods, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and the blue moon fund.
