Overview of the Holohil Grant Program

For more than 35 years, Holohil has supported endangered species research and educational work for various agencies and researchers. During this period, Holohil has primarily donated transmitters for bat and raptor research. However, the program is now expanding its support to include other species that have not been previously covered. The Holohil Grant Program (HGP) was introduced in 2016 to offer transmitters at reduced or no cost to deserving projects. To date, HGP has awarded over $75,000 worth of transmitters to projects worldwide.

Each quarter, projects can receive up to CAD$2,500 toward Holohil transmitters, with all shipping charges covered (excluding import duties and taxes). Projects must generally meet the following criteria: significant use of Holohil transmitters, advancement of scientific knowledge, contribution to conservation, public engagement/education, and focus on underrepresented species of high research or conservation value.
